 Only if it steps on something that was intentionally removed from
 -current. Which isn't clear. Probably, nobody remembers for sure about
 ppc things that went on in 2005/2006.

 Since of the binaries says it's from 2.0, and the other from 3.0, it
 would be interesting to check if something freshly compiled on -3
 (rather than -4) now fails, but I assume it would be a nuisance to
 actually do that check...
