Thats good advice.

If its a PPC binary, it *will not run* on an intel system.

The latest OSX compilers however are able to compile a dual architecture
binary; a binary which contains code for both intel and pcc cpus. However,
for libsndfile at least, this is a bad idea. libsndfile has lots of
architecture and OS secific tweaks which will not be correctly detected
for one or the other of the two dual architectures.

Remember, Erik says, "Always do native compiles and always run make check
to make sure libsndfile is working correctly".
