Taglib in 64bit on OS X 10.6?

Hi all,

As you may know, Taglib is actually quite a popular tag library on OS  
X. It is used in Songbird, Cog, Tag, Play and Max for instance.

Recently released OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" will default to 64bit mode  
on all 64bit CPUs, which is an estimated 80% to 90% of all Macs out  
there. Nearly all frameworks and Apple apps run in 64bit, an  
increasing amount of applications will run in 64bit as 32bit support  
becomes deprecated and customers (rightly or wrongly) demand 64bit  
versions of applications. And, most importantly for Taglib, all  
developer toolchains default to compiling for 64bit from now on.

Considering a lot of developers will be compiling Taglib for 64bit  
soon and 1.6 is in RC stage, it may be worth checking if it compiles  
without any issues before releasing it as Final. It may save a lot of  
trouble over the next months when perhaps an simple check could have  
prevented it.

Is there anybody with access to Snow Leopard (I unfortunately haven't  
yet) that has tried to compile it for 64bit?
