Since the precompiled binary on OS X should support 10.7+ and compiling takes some time, which is most likely unnecessary too. I think it makes sense to test the precompiled binary and if it works just use that and if not, fall back to compiling.

This applies to both jpegtran and optipng, but jpegtran is the slowest.

@badunk what do you think? would you be interested in doing a PR?

In case the auto-detection fails for some reason, would there be an easy way for the user to manually compile the binary?

sounds like a great idea

I'll do a PR - but I may have to get to it within the next couple of days.
