[darwinbuild] two issues

In general you can't use plists for a release that was not released  
for your architecture. For instance, 8G32 was a PowerPC-only release.  
This means that the binary roots that are provided for bootstrapping  
are not ABI compatible with your Intel Mac's kernel, leading to  
various failure modes.

What's your larger goal of building a PowerPC kernel on an Intel host?
