Comment (by jsiwek):

 For the Mac package, a build w/ universal binaries containing both i386
 and x86_64 is not currently possible because there is code that relies on
 preprocessor directives (e.g. SIZEOF_VOID_P) whose configuration is
 dependent on architecture.  Meaning CMake wouldn't be able to make the
 universal binary in one-shot, we'd need to compile specifically for i386,
 then for x86_64 and combine them manually or with some other scripting.

 One easy answer is to make two Mac packages, one for i386 and one for
 x86_64, but since Apple has updated all product lines to 64-bit processors
 since ~ August 2007, I'm inclined to only make the x86_64 package (still
 targeting OS X 10.5 minimum).
