But I was under the impression that I cannot build 3.0.4 from sources
except by using the 3.0.0 seed compiler...
Has this requirement changed?

In any case I don't have any Linux i386 computer before so I am on a
clean slate here. But I found the link to the tarball for 3.0.4 on the
download page
Then I tried this URL by editing the two instances of 3.0.4 in the URL
to 3.0.0 and tested it. Downloaded the old tarball just fine and I
found the ppc386 compiler!

So now I am almost ready to start, except I don't know the exact build
requirements I need to install in this desktop Ubuntu 18.04...
On RPi units I usually do:

sudo apt-get install -y libx11-dev libgdk-pixbuf2.0-dev libcairo2-dev
gir1.2-coglpango-1.0 libpangox-1.0-dev xorg-dev libgtk2.0-dev

Is this what I need also on Ubuntu (i386)?
