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.
