The Mac trunk Firefox build on bm-xserve02 isn't universal, it's ppc-only.

And it's not even right for a ppc-only build: it's built with gcc 4.0 and the 10.4 SDK, which produces something that can only run on 10.3.9 and later.

To turn this into a true universal build, the universal switch needs to be turned on in tinder-config AND the universal mozconfig needs to be sourced in mozconfig.

To leave it a ppc-only build but fix it so that it's a proper release-quality ppc build, the mozconfig needs to set the SDK to 10.2.8 (or 10.3.9? - it is the trunk, after all) and the compiler needs to be set to gcc-3.3 either by setting CC and CXX in mozconfig or by running gcc_select.

Tb-nightly on that same tinderbox, bm-xserve02, is also affected.  It's ppc-only and is being built with gcc 4.0 and no SDK.  cf tells me that the SDK was commented out due to problems.  I can see that the problems are that the 4.0 compiler is selected.  The proper fix would have been to leave the SDK in place and set the 3.3 compiler, if a ppc build was desired.  (But don't we need universal coverage here?)

As it stands now, Tb/1.8.1 and Fx/trunk are both ppc-only builds and will only run on 10.3.9 or later - this is bad.

Our current plan is to move all the trunk builds (Fx, Tb, XR) to bm-xserve03, set them up for UB, and put the configs in public CVS.
