It may not, however, necessarily support compiling, for example in your case, 64-bit software on a 32-bit machine. You could set universal_archs to "ppc i386" (instead of the Snow Leopard default of "x86_64 i386") and it should be able to do that.

You can compile for x86_64 on an i386 machine (or for i386 on a ppc
machine) just fine. You only get problems if the build system wants to
run something that it just compiled, and you're building for a single
arch that the build machine can't run. This is one of the drawbacks of
using muniversal.
