No. You can even mix PowerPC and Intel Macs. Only requirement is the  
same minor OS X release.

But I have seen a problem when debugging on the Intel machine and  
running gdb on the PowerPC.
The reverse direction works (but I don't have checked if I have the  
same versions of Xcode and gdb
on both machines).

Yes, that could work!
