It would be nice if the OS X installer performed a CPU architecture check.

@isaacs: The node binary is i386 in node-v0.7.3.pkg but it's x86_64 in node-v0.6.10.pkg. Is that intentional?

On a general note, we should probably ship universal binaries, larger file sizes be damned.

Hm. Looks like the make pkg target in os x doesn't force the arch to ia32. It ought to. (Already does this on master.)

@bnoordhuis Yes, we should ship universals. But for now (that is, 0.6.11) it's probably best to just make it i386
