What have you done with your developer tools installation ?? It doesn't 
install anything in /usr/local by default. And by default all libraries 
are universal binaries so you shouldn't have that problem.

It seems you have installed a new gcc version and you haven't build it 
the Apple way, that is building with support for universal builds.
