Thanks. I did some further testing and it appears the ImageMagick 
libraries are still not linked correctly -- we still need this workaround:

    cd /opt/local/lib
    ln -s libMagickCore.1.dylib libMagick.dylib

Older versions of ImageMagick work without the workaround; not sure 
which version introduces the change from "libMagick" to "libMagickCore".
I've confirmed the beta0 version also builds on PPC, but it needs the 
workaround with recent versions of ImageMagick.

I'm cc'ing upstream -- Francesco, I don't know what's happening here, 
but the linking is still not working for the new ImageMagick.

My co-maintainer may have reservations on these changes; I regret we 
haven't been able to sort out the linking issues yet.
