PowerPC and Intel architectures), on Mac OS X 10.4 and newer, by using
32-bit and 64-bit Intel architectures), on Mac OS X 10.7 and newer, by using
the fatbuild.sh script in build-scripts:
sh build-scripts/fatbuild.sh
sudo build-scripts/fatbuild.sh install
This script builds SDL with 10.2 ABI compatibility on PowerPC and 10.4
ABI compatibility on Intel architectures. For best compatibility you
This script builds SDL with 10.5 ABI compatibility on i386 and 10.6
ABI compatibility on x86_64 architectures. For best compatibility you
should compile your application the same way. A script which wraps

Please note that building SDL requires at least the 10.7 SDK (even if you
target back to 10.5 systems). PowerPC support for Mac OS X has been officially
