[Mesa-users] Installing old MESA version on new Mac OS with M1

We are running a Mesa lab alongside a stellar astrophysics lecture using
the rather old 12778 version. Some students with macOS Monterey (Version
12.4 and the new M1 chip) were running into problems with installing the
MESA SDK from September 10 2021 recommended for compiling older MESA
versions. They are, however, able to install the latest SDK and MESA
version. Usually, the MESA SDK installer simply exits with an error
message that the installation did not succeed (we used the native
installer and their bash is also set to use native). We also tried using
the latest SDK and a MESA patch circulated on this mailinglist to
compile MESA 12778 with the latest compiler collection but without success.
I am myself not a Mac user and have little to no experience with Macs. I
was wondering whether someone else encountered the same issue and might
have a solution at hand - I hope I did not miss an old mail thread on
this. The students also tried NuDocker, apparently without success.
Any hints are much appreciated!
