Comment (by jsiwek):

 In general, x86_64 binaries seem to run on 10.5, but when trying to run an
 x86_64 bro binary (compiled on the same 10.5.8 machine) I see a trace

 $ BROPATH=`source bro-path-dev` gdb ./src/bro

 (gdb) run

 An i386 bro binary works on 10.5.  I'm thinking that something's wrong
 with the x86_64 libresolv.dylib on 10.5 -- googling around I see traces
 for a couple other 64-bit applications that crap out in the same spot in
 libresolv on OS X 10.5, but no answers/solutions.

 I don't have a strong urge to investigate further, so it may be that we
 have to make an i386 package for 10.5+ and an x86_64 package for 10.6+.

 We should probably consider this again at the time we're ready for a bro
 1.6 release -- maybe we want to make it a habit to only make packages for
 OS versions currently supported by Apple, which may be 10.6 and 10.7 by
 the time we're ready.
