I would have guessed so.

Looks like you successfully built libidn again. Is it now built for x86_64? I suspect it is now.

p5-net-libidn did not build because you did not clean it since the last attempt.

Yes; everything you build on Snow Leopard should by default be built 64-bit. This is normal. What wasn't normal was that your libidn.dylib wasn't 64-bit for some reason.

No, you don't need universal. You just need all the architectures to match, which, unless you mess with build_arch or install parts on 10.5 and parts on 10.6, should just happen automatically.
