Not that I know of.

I think the whole idea of universal binaries is a really bad one :

The main problem is that for libraries like libsndfile with a large
and comprehensive test suite, there is no way to run the test suite
for the cross-compiled CPU, the one for which the compiler is *most
likely* to screw up.
