Not necessarily. Just because something compiles for a given
architecture doesn't mean that it works for that architecture. =)

8.0 - 8.3 were only released as PPC in binary form. Even though
they're built with the i386 architecture, the ABI is different from
what finally shipped on the MacBook, and the i386 half of the sources
were essentially thrown away. In fact, none of the PPC build lineage
for 8.x are expected to work on an Intel machine.
