I built from source on my PPC iMac and installed the resulting dmg file
on the PPC eMac that is running MacOS 10.3.9. That worked fine.

I tried installing on the eMac the latest universal dmg that Johannes
made. That crashes hard almost as soon as it starts running, same as the
previous one, and appears to run on my PPC iMac running 10.4.8, as far
as I can tell over VNC.

I don't know why that happens. Johannes, how did you make the universal

As an aside, if you use the attached patch for the bundle-dmg target in
src/Makefile the dmg file is compressed another approx 4 megabytes. it
creates the less-compressed dmg file first, then converts it to a R/W
format which eliminates unused space that has to be left in there when
creating the dmg from file directories, and finally converts it back to
R/O with maximum compression and deletes the temporary R/W version.
