The problem is that on Snow Leopard, i assume, some libraries are deprived of the ppc part while rbutil still requires them while compiling.
It would be nice to have the -arch ppc removed from Makefile in case compilation takes places on Snow Leopard. Make process got through without problems after I manually did so.
I used files from revision 24373.
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Not a Bug
Additional comments about closing:  This is really not a bug but a problem of the build setup (see my comment). However, I've now added a -config intel option to the qmake call which changes the project to target OS X 10.5 Intel only. Doesn't change the used libraries, but it builds fine for me using macx-g++ as spec.

I can build Rockbox Utility fine on Snow Leopard (the svn binaries I'm providing at are built on SL). Please be more detailed with the problem description, compiling also requires to use the correct QMAKESPEC value (the default, at least for Qt 4.6.0, doesn't work. See the script for details).
