Which version of Xcode are you using? As far as I know, if you're using
LiveCode 7.0.2 and Xcode 6.1 upwards then you can't not try to build for
the 64-bit architecture as part of your binary.

There's a neat little command line tool called lipo which lets you see
which architectures are included in your binary if you want to double
