Subject: OCaml on Mac OS X universal?
While trying to  build OCaml I noticed the build on Mac OS X ppc and  
Mac OS X intel produce quite different results. E.g. on one, the  
debugger is native code, on the other it is bytecode. This makes it  
impossible to merge ppc and i386 versions in one universal binary/ 
library with lipo and that makes it impossible to share OCaml on /usr/ 
local between multiple OS X systems regardless of architecture.

So, I have been trying to fix this but I have run into snags and  
troubles that are way beyond my knowledge here.

Anybody know more?
