Description Anders F Björklund 2004-09-19 20:44:52 UTC
The latest Darwin OS (7.x) uses a "fat" architecture
where both PowerPC (ppc) and Intel (i386) code is in
the same binaries, both for programs and for libs/objects.

This arch is then used for packaging such RPMS: .fat.rpm
See http://www.opendarwin.org/downloads/7.2.1/RPMS/fat/

These fat binaries run on Mac OS X too, even if Apple
only ships the Developer Tools for the ppc side of it,
the rest are available as part of the Darwin project.

Added to HEAD and rpm-4_4 branches, should be in rpm-4.4.1-0.6 when built.
Thanks for the patch.
