[tex-live] Building TeXLive in Mac OS X 10.6

Building TeXLive source on Mac OS X 10.6 will use x86_64 by default, but
several ATSUI APIs used by XeTeX is not available to x86_64 linking, so
the whole building process must be forced to use i386 architecture.
However, simply exporting CFLAGS/CXXFLAGS/LDFLAGS = "-arch i386" doesn't
work, because in src/libs/icu, the configure script will filter all these
flags, resulting icu still build as x86_64, which makes XeTeX can't link.
Any solution to this issue?
