Yes. I have tried building on a more recent machine and then quite
some people using older systems were unable to execute the binary. For
you it might not be such a big issue since there are probably not many
linux ppc users wanting to install the latest context while insisting
to keep working on an ancient system :) :) :)

For linux on i386 architecture it's a bit different since the system
is often installed by an admin and user has no choice. (The binaries
built on recent system didn't work on the old contextgarden for
example.)
