CMake can build Universal binaries. Just set the CMake variable
CMAKE_OSX_ARCHITECTURES to a semicolon-separated list of architectures
(e.g., i386;ppc).

We don't currently support building Boost as an OSX framework. That
would be a *great* way for Boost to be built and distributed on Mac OS
X, but we haven't tried doing so yet.
