This SDK supports many platform/gcc-version configuration and they're placed under lib directory. You need to choose correct set of libraries to build your application. For instance, lib/darwin8-ppc/gcc-3.3/release is the library for gcc/g++3.3 to build applications for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger (darwin 8), PowerPC.

Cross Build Environment

To build your application for the versions of OS X which are different from the current running one, you firstly setup the cross-development environment. For more information, see Apple Developer Connection - Cross-Development.

You can also suppress these warning messages using -multiply_defined suppress ld flag. For more information see ld(1).
