Monolingual: Handle With Care

So I learned something interesting about Monolingual today: If you remove all the PPC stuff from your universal binaries, you won't be able to build and link Xcode projects. So if you think you need to save the megabytes of disk space that trimming PPC code from universal binaries will get you, think again if you use Xcode.

Or tell me how you worked around this.

does reinstalling xcode fix it, or do you need the ppc binaries from all your apps?

At work I archive-and-reinstalled Leopard. That obviously worked.

On my laptop, I re-installed Xcode, and so far so good. So I'm guessing re-installing Xcode will do it.
