Since the fontforge project provides binaries for Tiger (and Leopard)
on PPC, is there some reason not to use those? I can think of some
possible reasons - including my own - but those would all apply to the 
i-Installer version as well, as far as I know (though maybe not fink's).

The projects own binaries for PPC are as up to date as the latest
release in any other form (including source). The latest version was
released about 10 days ago.
