 Replying to [comment:2 mojca]:
 > Why do you make symlinks to `powerpc` rather than making a symlink to
 the actual architecture being used?

 That is what also MacTeX does for its symlinks: e.g., MacTeX 2013 links
 `ppc`, `powerpc`, `i386` to `bin/universal-darwin`, `x86_64` to
 `bin/x86_64-darwin` and `texbin` to `x86_64`.

 I don't recall the exact reason, but there might be some programs that
 check for a specific architecture instead of texbin.
