os x 10.6 snow leopard configure target architecture

I had to specify ./configure --target=x86_64-darwin to get things to work on snow leopard. By default snow leopard's gcc builds 64 bit binaries, but uname -p always returns i386. uname -a is no good to use either. it only reports x86_64 if the boot specifies the 64 bit kernel (32 bit is default).

I will attach a patch to the configure script that uses the system_name to check for Darwin when it reports i386. If it is Darwin, it checks uname -r and if it is 10* it changes host_arch to x86_64.

This resolved the issue for me. It shouldn't affect any other system as it limits it to Darwin versions 10.* which should limit it to just OS X 10.6
