Subject Re: problem building apr-util 64 bit Mac OS X
Date Tue, 07 Feb 2012 14:16:29 GMT
The reason is that having the concept of a fat binary (Universal was used to denote PPC/i386
fat) doesn't mean that everything compiled on a modern mac will contain both 32bit and 64
bit code…
in fact apr-util build from configure && make all && make install seems to
always build 32 bit code….

this is problematic if you are trying to build a static library that is used to link a 32/64
(fat) application.
the output from lipo:

input file libaprutil-1.a is not a fat file
Non-fat file: libaprutil-1.a is architecture: i386
