Compiling Universal Binary library on Leopard, make/cc problems
I'm trying to compile the freetype library on Leopard for use as a Universal Binary library, however I'm having some make trouble.
I'm trying to pass options to the CC environment variable, but that always seems to result in a "libtool: link: `/Users/matt/Workspace/freetype/freetype-2.3.7/objs/ftsystem.lo' is not a valid libtool object" error, after which make fails.
This is the result of doing a simple:
make "CC=cc -arch i386"
Just doing a configure and make works ok (without CC) but I can only ever compile an i386 library this way. Configuring the the ppc build/host system options, and then doing make "CC=cc -arch ppc" results in the exact same error. Why doesn't it like cc?

Have you looked at this?
Some projects don't even compile for PPC on an Intel Mac, for whatever reasons. I've had to just build them on a PPC machine and manually create the universal binary using lipo.

I was starting to get that feeling considering other things were compiling fine with the exact same process. I had a feeling that I'd cross-compiled freetype before, but I might not have done. Might have to dig up a G4 Mini from eBay then, as I don't have a (working) PPC machine
Thanks for your help.
