Open Darwin and Mac OS X/i386 are not entirely equivalent. I've seen  
these kind of results in the past from people who tried this. I don't  
know what the actual difference or workaround is. Maybe it works if  
you can compile cctools from http://www.opensource.apple.com/darwinsource/DevToolsJun2008/

At least when building those on a native Mac OS X, you end up with  
cctools that produce binaries which also run on Mac OS X.
