What's the proper way to create such a build?  I've been trying:

./configure --with-universal-archs=32-bit --enable-framework
--enable-universalsdk=/ MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=10.5

but the configure AC_C_BIGENDIAN macro doesn't seem to pick up
on the universality:  the output from ./configure contains the line:

checking whether byte ordering is bigendian... no

I was expecting a "... universal" instead of "... no".

knows some magic to make things work for universal builds; it ought to be
possible to imitate that magic somehow.
