Ticket #23663 (closed defect: wontfix)
running universal python2.6 with 'arch -i386' does not end up running 32-bit interpreter

installing python26 with universal support (python26 @2.6.4_0+darwin+universal) I could not get it to launch in 32-bit mode.
$ arch -i386 /opt/local/bin/python Python 2.6.4 (r264:75706, Feb 6 2010, 15:16:39) [GCC 4.2.1 (Apple Inc. build 5646) (dot 1)] on darwin Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information. >>> import sys; print sys.maxint 9223372036854775807 >>>
this problem has been raised in a comment from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2155986/mac-10-6-universal-binary-scipy-cephes-specfun-aswfa-symbol-not-found/2213391#2213391 , I quote Markus "Does macports install python with a fixed version of pythonw.c? AFAIK there is a bug that makes arch -i386 execute the 64 bit version also. If it works properly, sys.maxint should differ between the two, with 2147483647 for i386 and 9223372036854775807 for x86_64, but unpatched python will print the larger number for both flags. Could you check how your sys.maxint behaves with the various arch's?"
