    Ideally I'd like to be able to compile qt for 64 bit and 32 bit support (-universal flag) but can't seem to get past the configure step! Any help is greatly appreciated!

    universal will also try to build for powerpc (the error you are seeing)

    Remove universal and add -arch x86 -arch x86_64, you should be fine then.

  • That worked great! Thank you for the quick response and solution!
