Hi all!

On Snow Leopard running 64bit kernel, configure set's architecture to be 

[ivan]/opt/otp_src_R14B04 > uname -a
Darwin MacBook-Pro.local 10.8.0 Darwin Kernel Version 10.8.0: Tue Jun  7 
16:32:41 PDT 2011; root:xnu-1504.15.3~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64

[ivan]/opt/otp_src_R14B04 > ./configure
checking build system type... i386-apple-darwin10.8.0
checking host system type... i386-apple-darwin10.8.0

This is definitely wrong. The problem might be this:

[ivan]/opt/otp_src_R14B04 > uname -p
[ivan]/opt/otp_src_R14B04 > uname -m

Please advise,
