I am building on Mac OSX 10.5.8 with Rev 4.0

I just made another trial, this time for Linux, Mac universal and Mac  
Intel only and one Windows

The Linux standalone I obtain keeps being a text file!

The Windows standalone gets normally a .exe suffix and it"s type is  
"Microsoft Windows application" but its icon is a simple white one  
which seems suspect to me(?)
Habitually I got a black rectangular icon, for Linux and Windows as  

Any way I have no opportunity to try either Linux or Windows.

As for Mac, I obtained 2 standalones (type = Application), but they  
are not working: nothing happens when I double-click them (or more  
precisely a small translucent image appears and vanishes immediately.

Thank you Sarah for you attention to my problem
