This is working fine with the 64-bit only build I am creating with 'build-webkit' but it doesn't then support the 32-bit plug ins (which the nightly build does when it arrives).

build-webkit --32-bit
will build 32-bit-only products.

build-webkit ARCHS="i386 x86_64" ONLY_ACTIVE_ARCH=NO
will build universal products.
