Well, i do I know if I'm on a 32-bit or 64-bit mac ?
I just install snow leopard. That's it.

So I have to uninstall single packages and reinstall them (after switching build_arch to i386)
or do I have to reinstall all packages.

What is the base way?

I just need some 32-bit libs (e.g. libjasper) and some others for a own project
