What do you mean by "it doesn't appear as UB" ? In order to create an
Universal binary you need 4.6 or higher. You shouldn't have to do
anything special (just make sure, the third party objects you may use
are UB too). The resulting application will be compatible with 10.3.9
(10.4 is recommended though).

Your application does not contain any mac tel code. So the
application is loaded with rosetta. When you build a standalone
application, it build something based on Max Runtime. If you look at
its info in the Finder, does it says it's Universal binary (I can't
remember if you can have access to that information on Mac 10.3.9
though). Is that possible that you used one of those software which
clean your OS by removing all mac tel code to save some space?
