Building on Leopard for Tiger (OS X)

I have been trying to build the BSD port so that I can run it on Tiger, I
have been this technote, but am not sure I
all I have to do is pass in the correct parameter to the build.  I have been
passing in MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.4 and there is logic in the source
that use MAC_OS_X_VERSION_MAX_ALLOWED.  The problem that I am having is that
the context_pc does not seem to be included correctly when I try to build
for Tiger.

It seems that the internal structure of context changed between Tiger and
Leopard.  Part of this that confuses me is, if I was able to get this to
build, would it actually work on both Tiger and Leopard?  Or would I have to
have two different binaries?  If it would work, why not just build for Tiger
by default?
