In addition to what Jan said, in Rev 2.0 the OS X build makes an 
application bundle, which put on Mac OS pre-10 system, just appears to 
be a folder not an application. Some companies, like Omni, used to put 
an empty file in their app bundles that says "OS X required" so pre-10 
users would have an idea.

But I admire your ingenuity for building older Mac versions of your 
app. My opinion is that you shouldn't bother since Mac OS pre-10 are 
obsoleted and not supported by Apple. Evolution needs a little kick
