Precisely.  All the machines I tested on are running Snow Leopard.

Doing a little digging:

[09:10][admin at Chris-Patti:~]$ file /bin/ls
/bin/ls: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures
/bin/ls (for architecture x86_64):      Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64
/bin/ls (for architecture i386):        Mach-O executable i386
[09:10][admin at Chris-Patti:~]$

[09:07][admin at Chris-Patti:~]$ file
Mach-O executable i386

So, the installer is installing a 32 bit executable.

This at least makes sense now.  Unfortunately, I do not understand enough
about C code linking and 64 bit issues to fix the problem.

And, wow, you're maintaining the OSX sources/installer without having actual
native console access! That's impressive!

If I can get my home Mac set up to act as an ssh server, I'll gladly provide
you with an account.
