Tried that fix - same result.
It would appear that Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger doesn't include quad-universal
binaries of libbz2. The newest Developer Tools (Xcode), version 2.5, has a copy
of /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk/usr/lib/libbz2.dylib that is only has ppc
and i386 architectures.
However it appears that Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard things build just fine. I dont
have a Leopard machine right in front of me at the moment but because I was
able to successfully build the binary kit on a Leopard machine I'm assuming
things are fine.
So that some people don't have to go editing Makefiles to get their binary
kit's supported might there be a simpler solution that automatically determines
the proper binary kit flags? Perhaps one of:
- An option to NOT compile universal binaries
- An option to pick which architectures for the universal binaries
- As an aside here many of Apple's binaries are only dual-architecture. Is
there a good reason to be build all four?
Also as an aside I think there's value in choosing whether or not to use a
package installer versus a tarball for the binary kit package.
