Comment (by kencu):

 ld64-127 in the MacPorts repo does not currently install on MacOSX 10.4

 Tiger is presently limited to ld64-97 in MacPorts (and most everywhere
 else on Earth).

 I have, however, modified ld64-127 to build and install on Tiger:

 $ port -v installed ld64-127
 The following ports are currently installed:
   ld64-127 @127.2_14+llvm33 platform='darwin 8' archs='ppc'

 but so far I have not enabled that on MacPorts. It is quite possible that
 even newer versions of ld64 could be made to work on Tiger -- it just
 requires some effort and a bit of attention to detail to do it.

 To be honest, so far, ld64-97 links most things on Tiger that need
 linking, though ... was there a specific reason you were wanting it? Or
 just generally trying to see what would build.
