You can build for 10.3 on a 10.4 system by installing the 10.3 cross- 
development SDK and passing "-isysroot /Developer/SDKs/ 
MacOSX10.3.9.sdk" to gcc. The result should be the same as compiling  
on a 10.3 box. It's even possible to compile with the 10.3 SDK for  
PPC and the 10.4 SDK for X86 and then create a universal binary that  
will run on 10.3+ on PPC and 10.4+ on X86. I think Adium does  
something like this.

We (imeem) are willing to help figure this stuff out, but we haven't  
been getting much feedback on the build work that we've already done.
