Perhaps you can test compilation for PPC with recent Xcode and on recent
OS X, just not actually running the resulting binary on your Intel Mac?

Oh, it looks like the same compiler change was introduced on Linux (in
upstream gcc?) first and on OS X later, thereby eventually breaking the
old source code for both platforms.  I am still able to compile and run
the code in e.g. JtR 1.7.9 as-is on OS X 10.5.8 with a version of Xcode
from similar times.
