Supporting XCode 4 is a problematic, as there is no supported way of building for 10.5 in XCode 4. So, for the best compatibility, we are currently sticking with XCode 3, which allows us to build for and support 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7, at least for 32 bit builds. So XCode 4 doesn't buy us anything very worthwhile right now.
Building for 64 bit is going to be a fair bit of work due to deprecated interfaces, but is something I will attempt once we have the argyll driver working better.
