Actually, that's a much better way of doing things generally. I wish
this was the standard way of building universal binaries, it is
usually more robust than using multiple -arch arguments, especially
when you export a public API with C headers. I use this technique
myself for all my packages pure C libraries (audiolab and samplerate
in particular),
