The latter should be OK, the former is indeed built for PowerPC G4. That doesn't necessarily mean that it uses instructions that are missing on the G3 I think. You could try to do the failing link step by hand, using the `-force_cpusubtype_ALL` option and see how that works out.
(The doc of that option seems to confirm my idea: "The is only applicable with -arch ppc.  It tells the linker to ignore the PowerPC cpu requirements (e.g. G3, G4 or G5) encoded in the object files and mark the resulting binary as runnable on any PowerPC cpu.").
