The reason to build in 10.3 would be to test the framework in 10.3.  
If the tests do not compile as is, when the framework is in /Library/ 
Frameworks and you are running 10.3, then it seems the only option is  
to have a separate test target for 10.3  (yet another target!!!).

An alternative is to say that testing with 10.4 should be enough, if  
the compatibility for 10.3 is maintained by sticking to 10.3-only  
symbols, and we don't start fiddling with #ifdef. In other words, the  
code to be compiled is the same in 10.3 and 10.4, and we can assume  
it will behave the same (of course, this is never 100% guaranteed if  
there are version-specific bugs in the Apple's frameworks that affect  

Bottom line: trying to maintain 10.3 compatible tests would probably  
be a pain in the butt.

I would be curious however if there is some simple mechanism for that.
