Builds fine for me on Snow Leopard (default is 64-bit) and Leopard (64-bit).

I have not tested 32-bit on Snow Leopard but this paragraph in INSTALL needs tweaking before releasing 5.12:

  "Natively 64-bit systems need neither -Duse64bitint nor -Duse64bitall.
On these systems, it might be the default compilation mode, and there
is currently no guarantee that passing no use64bitall option to the
Configure process will build a 32bit perl. Implementing -Duse32bit*
options is planned for perl 5.12."
