I built the following program:

       print *, 'hello'

and confirmed that the resulting binary works on 10.4 i386 
and ppc systems.

I built a considerably large piece of code and linked it
successfully against pythonmac 2.4, whose distutils insists
on including "-arch i386 -arch ppc" on the link line.

This code works on i386.  I have not tested it on ppc.

So as far as my limited testing is concerned there is a
working universal fortran available.
