Comment (by kencu):

 This port does build on both 10.5 PPC and 10.5 Leopard, and up. The issues
 with it building on 10.4 PPC are probably something that could be overcome
 (usually these things are POSIX define mixups on 10.4 -- this didn't
 really get straightened out until 10.5).

 As there is no real need for libuv at the moment other than Cmake (which
 has a good workaround as above) I don't imagine I'll be spending any time
 on this to fix it.

 So as far as I'm personally concerned, this could be closed as 'wontfix'.

 I'll pass along the cmake tiger fix to michael and see what he thinks
 about incorporating it into macports. For the moment, it sits in my custom
 TigerPorts repo at <https://github.com/kencu/TigerPorts> for anyone who
 might want it (along with lots of other Tiger fixes).
