Building 32-bit only on Snow Leopard (dylib failed to build)
Okay, I know this isn't all THAT helpful, but I was trying to build ruby 1.9.1 on Snow Leopard, but 32-bit only. I had CFLAGS, LDFLAGS, CXXFLAGS, and DLDFLAGS all set to '-arch i386'
Everything would be fine, all *.o files would be built i386, but when it came time to create libruby.1.9.1.dylib, the -arch i386 flag was not present. I'm no autoconf genius, so I have absolutely NO idea how to patch this. But all I did was re-run the failing command and manually added the -arch i386 command, and it worked.
A minor point, but kind of annoying nonetheless.
I have attached the relevant output of 'make'.

Do you mean just "-arch=i386" ? I have tried that as a directive in .rvmrc. It results in the build failure originally described by Bryan Ross. Replacing "-arch=i386' with '--with-arch=i386" as an rvm directive causes immediate build abort.
Where should the "--with-arch=i386" be specified if not in .rvmrc?
