If MacPorts, or package managers in general, are not your cup of tea,
feel free to check out the build script I use for building the
Subversion OSX Universal binary hosted on openCollabNet. Here is a
link to the binary and a link to the resources I use:


In general, the rules for building a multi-arch binary on OSX is
straight forward. Set a few environment variables, pass a few flags
to the compiler/linker and you get what you want. The problem is that
not all software was built for this type of thing, and their build
processes definitely need massaging to work with multiple
architectures. I think the link regarding environment variables and
compiler/linker flags was linked to earlier. Let me know if you need
help with this.

Take care,
