There are a couple of ways to get a "universal" app.
1) Use the magic of Xcode: set up a project for this and other
commands you want to be universal, and then, under build settings,
select the architectures you want. Details are beyond the scope of
this list :-}. I think the doc for Xcode will give you some assistance.
2) Given that you have two versions (_32, _64), you can "lipo" them
together as a universal object file.
If the command is "simple" (no libraries other than system-supplied
ones), this builds 'cmd' as universal:
cc -arch x86_64 -arch i386 cmd.c -o cmd
If the command requires non-system libraries (e.g., ones you build
yourself), then your best bet is to build them separately, and then
use "lipo" directly:
lipo -arch i386 cmd-i386 -arch x86_64 cmd-x86_64 -output cmd -create
The "-arch xxx" bits are actually redundant; lipo figures this out for
itself if you don't help.
