[webkit-dev] How to build webkit as "fat binary"

It appears from some bugs posted on bugzilla (e.g. 5086) that WebKit  
is supposed to be able to build for i386 architecture, but I am not  
having any luck doing so.  I'm trying to build WebKit as 'fat binary'  
-- having both i386 and Intel architectures. But I am having no luck.

For instance, It's not building dftables, which is needed right off  
the bat:

     /usr/bin/gcc-4.0 -o /Volumes/BigData/build/JavaScriptCore.build/ 
Deployment/dftables.build/Objects-normal/i386/dftables -L/Volumes/ 
BigData/build/Deployment -F/Volumes/BigData/build/Deployment - 
filelist /Volumes/BigData/build/JavaScriptCore.build/Deployment/ 
dftables.build/Objects-normal/i386/dftables.LinkFileList -arch i386 - 
/usr/bin/ld: warning fat file: /usr/lib/gcc/i686-apple- 
darwin8/4.0.1/../../../libSystem.dylib does not contain an  
architecture that matches the specified -arch flag: i386 (file ignored)

Am I missing something here?  Is this a bug in TOT?  One would think  
that intel compatibility would be a no-brainer at this stage in the
