Sure, you need to backport enough of Tiger to Panther to "make it  
work". See Mark's phrase "on a stock Panther system". I don't think  
it's viable to do this just 'cause.

I guess if it wasn't clear that you can't cross build across major  
release version, we need to revise that in the documentation, and  
perhaps enforce this in darwinbuild.

Why do you want to do this? What is your end goal?
