My solution is to 

	./Build --disable-xetex  --disable-xdv2pdf --disable-xdvipdfmx

on Snow Leopard. Then I build regularly on Leopard (Leopard can also run
64 bit binaries, but the compiler by default produces 32 bit binaries),
and move the missing 32-bit binaries to the mix.

I suspect it is possible to tell Snow Leopard to build 32 bit binaries,
but I've never had to do it, so I didn't try.


PS: I can certainly build the latest sources for him in 32 bits if
he doesn't have access to Leopard.
