By ``point the program'' I assume you mean set up /usr/texbin as one of the path elements in TeXworks->Preferences->Typesetting->Paths for TeX and related programs.
By the way, I haven't had a chance to move this version to my PPC system running 10.5 to test it but I will. If it was going to be Snow Leopard alone wouldn't Get Info... not list it as Universal?
