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

Are you able to build other universal binaries?

The error you cite below looks like the one that occurs when Xcode
isn't set up to do it. When installing Xcode, you have to do a custom
installation and select the universal SDK in order to compile
universal binaries. It's not installed by default.

To see if your Xcode installation is set up for it, look and see if
you have anything here: /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk
