Chris Fonnesbeck used to distribute both PowerPC and Intel binaries,
but he can't compile them for PowerPC at all anymore because he no
longer has access to a PowerPC machine. That's why now the site's
manager is only distributing Intel binaries; Universal builds won't be
possible for anything he does from the present time forward. Someone
else would have to compile on the PPC side for him.
