I don't think building FAT on ppc ever worked for me, that's why I  
added the --disable-fat option, which works fine.


If you set up your machine like the above instructions (you don't  
need Jack or Fink for vanilla), then use the pd-extended build  
system, you'll end up with a Pd-vanilla.app that works on Mac OS X.    
AFAIK, Miller's whole Mac OS X build system is not included in the SVN.
