I haven't yet built the frameworks as Universal Binaries, but I'm not

Since Apple ships libxml2 preinstalled, I'd say it's a pretty safe bet
that somebody has built it universal.  :-)

Doh! Of course.

Actually, more to to the point, I'm certain of it, since I maintain some
command-line XML tools and I've built and run them on Intel-based
Mac OS X, so I'm certain that they've built it universal.  I don't know
what mechanism they used, though---probably the build-separately-
and-glue-together method, which is less than ideal in terms of
build time (since it requires multiple passes across the tree), but
the same time, always works.

Anyway, here's what you should expect:


Thanks David, I will save this email for reference when the time comes. It's always helpful to hear the voice of experience in these things.
