You dont need different computers to build the fat binarys. Its possible
to build both on any mac. (like we do for rbutil).

And of course we dont need rbutil support on all major OS to get the
gigabeast out to the masses.
But we should probably differentiate between "supported" and "released".

So to get gigabeast supported we only need some install method, and the
target should have no critical bugs. No rbutil support needed, and no
need for all 3 archs. We should probably try to get new targets to
"supported" as early as possible.

For release, i think, we really should have rbutil support and have it
working on all platforms. As well as all major features working, and
stable on the target in question.

(Just as a reminder: we already have targets which are supported, but
not released: iaudio m3).
