Already done in the SVN of gnupg 1.4:

	* README: Update notes about OSX Leopard.

    Building Universal Binaries on Apple OS X

    You can build a universal ("fat") binary that will work on both
    PPC and Intel Macs with something like:

    ./configure CFLAGS="-arch ppc -arch i386" --disable-endian-check \
		--disable-dependency-tracking --disable-asm

    If you are doing the build on a OS X 10.4 (Tiger) PPC machine you
    may need to add "-isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk" to
    those CFLAGS.  This additional isysroot is not necessary on Intel
    Tiger boxes, or any OS X 10.5 (Leopard) or later boxes.

    Note that when building a universal binary, any third-party
    libraries you may link with need to be universal as well.  All
    Apple-supplied libraries (even libraries not originally written by
    Apple like curl, zip, and BZ2) are universal.

GnuPG is harder to build thus problems on OS X are to be expected.
