Good work today.

Unintentionally, when I installed Mono SDK on Mac OS X 10.4,
it replaced pkg-config by new one. I thank you for writing
that "Apple-genuine" pkg-config bundled to Xcode was legacy :-).
Also your note that "png" issue would be useful.

About the syntax of "export" command, I think,

 export LDFLAGS=-arch ppc -arch i386 -isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk

is not safe, quoting might be recommended, like this.

 export LDFLAGS="-arch ppc -arch i386 -isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk"

There is a typo "x85_64" which should be "x86_64".

And, giving the list of backends detected/enabled by
default would be helpful.
