How right you are...

~/lisp/Lisp_Sources/site/cffi/tests $ file libtest.so
libtest.so: Mach-O bundle i386
~/lisp/Lisp_Sources/site/cffi/tests $ file libtest2.so
libtest2.so: Mach-O bundle i386
~/lisp/Lisp_Sources/site/cffi/tests $ lipo libtest.so -info
Non-fat file: libtest.so is architecture: i386
~/lisp/Lisp_Sources/site/cffi/tests $ lipo libtest2.so -info
Non-fat file: libtest2.so is architecture: i386

I added a -m64 flag to the makefile for the test libs,
now they are

~/lisp/Lisp_Sources/site/cffi/tests $ lipo libtest2.so -info
Non-fat file: libtest2.so is architecture: x86_64
~/lisp/Lisp_Sources/site/cffi/tests $ lipo libtest.so -info
Non-fat file: libtest.so is architecture: x86_64
~/lisp/Lisp_Sources/site/cffi/tests $ file libtest2.so
libtest2.so: Mach-O 64-bit bundle x86_64

CFFI-tests now infini-loops with cpu usage at 100% while compiling  
the file calbacks.lisp (that is a problem for another night...),
however if I interrupt and do the following...

CL-USER> (asdf:oos 'asdf:load-op 'cffi-tests)

How many times shall we run the tests (uncompiled)? [1]:

Doing 182 pending tests of 182 tests total.
--- snip ---
No tests failed.
;;; Finished running tests (uncompiled) 1 times.

Thanks Gary!
