Screenshot of MacOS version check

Starting with AOO 4.1 we will support only MacOS 10.7 or newer because of a new dependency to a libc++ that was introduced with 10.7 first.

To avoid confusion by our users who try to run this version on older versions we add a system version check that informs the user before the office is installed or executed. The same check is added for language packs.

See for example the attached screenshot how the notification will look like. But keep in mind that we will finally check against version 10.7.0 and not 10.8.0 as in this screenshot. This was only used to check the feature on local 10.7 system.
