FileZilla doesn't run on OS X Tiger

FileZilla_3.0.11.1 doesn't load. The nightly on July 13, 08 doesn't work either.

Yes, I checked to see I downloaded the Intel version since I run on a Yonah based MacBook Pro.

Starting from terminal enlightens us with this,

"; exit
dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/lib/libiconv.2.dylib

Referenced from:
Reason: Incompatible library version: filezilla requires version 7.0.0 or later, but libiconv.2.dylib provides version 5.0.0

Trace/BPT trap

It looks like Tiger 10.4, my OS X version, has a dated library. I assume this version of FileZilla works with the new release of OS X 10.5, Leopard, because it's bound to have a newer version of the library.

Support for Tiger should be kept (it's not terribly old!), and could easily be done by providing the library in a self-contained package. NextStep introduced this idea to OS X. Thus, packages are supposed to be distributed with dependencies self-contained, and simmilar to what PC-BSD now does with their .pbi packages.

This would necessitate two packages, one for Tiger, and another for Leopard.

OS: OS X 10.4 MacIntel
Comp: MacBook Pro with the Yonah processor

FileZilla requires OS X 10.5

Since I no longer have access to a machine running OS X 10.4, I cannot create binaries for it.
