Thanks for the tip. The reason I want to build XeTeX from source is that
I want to experiment with an OpenType feature which hasn't been implemented
in XeTeX yet. So I'll have to compile it several times myself to see if my
code works.

Building inside libs/icu/icu-4.4 with CFLAGS="-arch i386", CXXFLAGS="-arch i386"
and LDFLAGS="-arch i386 -headerpad_max_install_names", configure with
--enable-static, then copy the resulting static libraries to libs/icu-build/lib
works. I wonder why such flags are removed in libs/icu/configure.ac and
libs/icu/Makefile.am, however.
