Thanks a whole bunch!  
The '-bundle -undefined warning' did the trick.
Now it no longer complains about the filetype, just one problem
remaining (so far) and that is an unresolved reference to
either dyld_stub_binding_helper
or __mh_dylib_header

If I remove dylib1.o from my ld command the undefined for __mh_dylib_header
goes away and I get the undefined for dyld_stub_binding_helper.
The dyld_stub_binding_helper references is coming from a .o file
compiled this way:
% cc -O2 -DXML_ERRORS -DFOR_LT  -I/usr/local/include/python2.0 -I. -I/usr/local/include/ltxml12   -c NSLintermodule.c -o NSLintermodule8.o
% nm NSLintermodule8.o | grep dyld_stub_binding_helper
         U dyld_stub_binding_helper

There is no mention of this symbol in the .c source or even in the .i file.
I cannot figure out where this reference is coming from or how it is supposed
to be satisfied.  I cannot find mention of it in the man pages for ld, cc, libtool,

otool says there are 75 references to this symbol:
Relocation information (__DATA,__la_symbol_ptr) 75 entries
address  pcrel length extern type    scattered symbolnum/value
00000128 False long   True   VANILLA False     dyld_stub_binding_helper
00000124 False long   True   VANILLA False     dyld_stub_binding_helper

My experience with dynamic loading is on AIX, and it does not help much

Any help you can add would be much appreciated. 

Here is my command:

 /usr/bin/ld \
-bundle -undefined warning \
   -arch ppc -o XMLintermodule8.so -L/usr/local/lib \
   NSLintermodule8.o alloc.o block_alloc.o hash.o \
   -lltapi12 -lltstd12 \
   -framework System
