Thanks once again. I'd been mucking about with CFLAGS and LDFLAGS and getting nowhere fast. I couldn't get a Universal binary library built - file kept returning a simple Mach-o bundle i386:

file /usr/local/pgsql/lib/lwpostgis.so
/usr/local/pgsql/lib/lwpostgis.so: Mach-O bundle i386

Glad you got to the bottom of it - it's dinner time for me now and I'll be in trouble with the long-suffering Wendy if I don't down tools for a while and help out.
