If you want to run on multiple versions (10.3, 10.4, 10.5, 10.6), it gets skankier, and you really need the help of a trained professional :-}

It's also worth nothing that autoconf-based (./configure) projects are not always compatible with setting CFLAGS to '-arch i386 -arch x86_64 -arch ppc', and this can cause some really subtle bugs.  Cross-compiling for multiple architectures and OS releases is really not fun; even using Xcode, you can still have problems with some of the system libraries.
