Sure, as long as you don't try to use the 32-bit you're free to delete  
it (on Snow Leopard). The libR and friends are "fat" so universal apps  
will still able to compile (even if they won't run).
In general, I was contemplating deleting the other arch's libs as well  
in the script, but I figured it's not worth the hassle, because the  
space used by libs is miniscule compared to data etc.
