I mentioned that I've done "make universe" in the first post, I meant
that I've test the build of ar itself in various archs.

Do you mean that I should use "BSD ar" to perform a "make world/universe",
observing the process and examing the resulting library files generated?

Yes. That's what I am doing now :) , but it takes time since "make universe"
is not so fast on a slow laptop...
