Dalibor & Mark,

Henri raises some good points here, since the ability to build OpenJDK 32/64 Universal was lost in the merge from the macosx-port repository to the jdk7u-osx repository with no public discussion.

I thought the ability to build 32/64 Universal was preserved, and Oracle was simply going to support 64-bit only in it's proprietary builds.

What is the best path to fixing this?
