In that case I would prefer current autoconf provided check instead of rolling out our own run-time test.

While this is something that we might want to straighten out anyway, universal binaries are probably not an issue anymore. Our current Mac binaries only run on OSX 10.7, and 10.7 doesn't support PPC processors. The last version of OSX that ran on PPC was 10.5, and Apple no longer releases security updates for it. Other than a few diehards, i suspect most PPC users to have reloaded with Debian or similar.

We have endianness dependant code on gtk3-client sprite.c. That potentially breaks MacOS X universal binaries as code for just one endianness is chosen for each build - universal binary may target two different endiannesses.
Build (configure) time check should be replaced with run-time check.
