When I do port install kdeutils4 to get version 4.2 of kde, I get a
really rare error. I am in a PowerBook G4, it has a PPC procesor, and
I get the error:
[ 93%] Built target OSXScriptLauncher
Linking CXX executable ../bin/ccmake
/usr/libexec/gcc/i686-apple-darwin8/4.0.1/ld: for architecture i386
/usr/libexec/gcc/i686-apple-darwin8/4.0.1/ld: warning

cputype (7) for specified -arch flag: i386 (file not loaded)
/usr/libexec/gcc/i686-apple-darwin8/4.0.1/ld: Undefined symbols:

Why is it trying to compile i386 code? Where can I modify to don't?
