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.
