[Biococoa-dev] universal framework ?

Hmm, haven't build the framework for a while (how do I do a checkout  
specifying my Bioinformatics username? I tried the simple svn  
checkout svn+ssh://bioinformatics.org/svnroot/BioCocoa  but it tries  
to login using my macosx account name instead of my bioinformatics one).
Anyway, I think we haven't made it universal though. In principle  
it's very simple. Select the BioCocoa project icon in XCode (the top  
root icon in the sources outlineview) and under the build options  
under the deployment configuration, change the architecture to "ppc  
i386" by doubleclicking the "architecture" label. Next we have to  
said the deployment target and sdk options for each platform.
You can copy paste the lines below in the same build options window  
as used above (they will end up at the bottom of the list).

SDKROOT_i386 = /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk
SDKROOT_ppc = /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.3.9.sdk

This allows the ppc version to run on 10.3 or higher and the i386  
version on 10.4 and higher. Now building the framework in deployment  
configuration should result in a universal binary (you can check by  
using get info under "kind" on the framework binary (not  
the .framework folder, but the BioCocoa executable in  
Go ahead and make these changes so we can add it to the poster ;-)
There's no use to deliver a ppc only binary, those few extra bytes is  
no problem I think and everyone should deliver universal binaries  
anyway nowadays.
Now, I should start to get my head into svn a bit more ;-)
