The above is correct as stated.  That said, for the continued discussion on the 
MP-dev list:

The way around this issue with MacPorts' Python 2.6 is to specify the whole 
path to the executable:

$ arch -i386 
 -c 'import sys; print(sys.maxsize)'

will print out: 2147483647.  While

$ arch -x86_64 ....

will print out: 9223372036854775807.  Of course, this mean that in order to 
execute a python script (e.g., usrp_fft.py), one needs to specify both the 
Python with full path as well as the script with full path (or '' or './' if in 
the current directory)

$ arch -i386
 /path/to/usrp_fft.py [options]

We shouldn't be allows to have this much fun! - MLD
