If want want a Universal Binary, you should definitely use CVS, not 5.0.3:

Also, do you really mean 10.4.1?  Or do you mean 10.4.11 or 10.5.1?  In
any case, which version of Xcode do you have?

1200 lines of text is a lot... :)  What settings did you change from
their default?

>I'm using  cmake-2.4.7-Darwin-universal

If you are on 10.5, I suggest CVS CMake also.

Lastly, there are some Mac dashboards that enable TCL, you may want to
look at their settings.
