Probably, but if that's the case MacOS X can be stealthy about it.
There are utilities one can use to make fat binaries as a
post-compilation or post-linking step, but we don't use any of them.
Based on the build logs this would seem to be the way XCode builds
However our use of bjam takes a different route. On a given call to
gcc I can specify both -arch i386 and -arch ppc, and the object file
that is built will contain the binaries for both. In this case the
linking phase, too, "just works".
