configure: error: SDK not found.  When using --with-macos-sdk, you must
specify a valid SDK.  SDKs are installed when the optional cross-development
tools are selected during the Xcode/Developer Tools installation.
*** Fix above errors and then restart with               "make -f build"
when trying to configure x86_64. 

This should get you back to ppc+i386:

Nick, thanks for filing this and giving us a way out of it, that's very much appreciated.

We'll want to go that way for the moment, until we can switch to the new universal builds, but we'll need hardware for that, as it seems we only can build that on 10.6 and we only have 10.5 machines, which will still be needed for building the stable branch. Also, I think they story of AUS and probably release automation would be unclear if we'd switch to single-architecture builds for the moment, so I'd prefer not to do that.

That said, I have no problem with unsupporting PPC per se, if we have a good way forward, which we don't yet, so we want to try and keep that config for the moment.

Pushed crediting Nick, I hope that should resolve the problems for the moment.

I'll file a followup depending on this and the Firefox bug for looking into switching to "new universal" for SeaMonkey builds in the future. We'll need to investigate what we need to do that.
