Good guesses! Of the two options that you recommend, my vote would be
for the second, particularly as I work on both kinds of machines. I
tried to recompile hunspell as you suggested, but got this:
14:52 ~/<2>hunspell-1.2.7: ./configure CC='gcc -arch ppc -arch i386'

See `config.log' for more details.
Obviously there is no /lib for cpp to be in, but I have been unable to
get ./configure to look in /usr/bin which is where it is. So, again,
you're right, there's another variable to be set. I tried all kinds of
things after googling for the problem and nothing that I tried worked.
I am hesitant to presume further on your good nature...
I am assembling all of this into a notes file to help any others who
want to pick their way along this singularly thorny path.
Thanks again for all your assistance.
