Yes, it does. But it defaults to 32-bit as I recall. Richard O'Keefe 
suggested a general practice of targeting the architecture considered 
default by the operating system. That's a good suggestion; I was just 
pointing out that when new versions of OSX change the default 
architecture, we should continue to support older versions of OSX on the 
newly-default architecture even though that architecture isn't the 
default one for the older version of OSX.

Live well,
