nBench compile question: PPC & Intel

I am wanting to run a computational benchmark suite called nBench, based on ByteMark.

I'll be running the benchmark on both Intel iMacs and PPC Macs.

I've posted to this subforum because nBench is distributed uncompiled as source, and I'm not sure how to do this right, if at all. I have XCode 2 installed, but am not sure how to use it here... or is it better to do something commandline in Terminal? Should I compile different versions for Intel & PPC?

If this works out, we'll use this nBench statistic in a benchmark feature comparing quadcore macs, the 2.0Ghz Intel iMac, and the 1.83Ghz Intel iMac, along with other macs and pcs. If there is an alternate computational suite that might work better, I would consider using that instead of nBench, which I became interested in by reading this article.

Hey Hector! We could even use your or hunter's super cube as a reference in the benchmark piece!

Anyways,

1) does this mean there is no way of compiling this for Intel macs? Even with XCode's universal functions?

2) Is there another (cross-chip cross-platform) computational or scientific benchmark you'd recommend?

nvm
Looks like we will run Java SciMark via an applet in Terminal (paste appletviewer http://math.nist.gov/scimark2/run.html) rather than the browser-based one.

Looked at doing folding@home, but there's no public intel osx version yet, although I dropped them an email.

1) yes but you'd have to port the thing to cocoa/xcode, which is long

2) dunno
