install imagick with XAMPP on mac

Problem:

Even though mac is running on 64bit platform, XAMPP is running 32bit php.
This is causing architecture incapability while trying to make ImageMagick work.

I’ve tried macports, homebrew, pecl, compiling directly from the source and none of it worked.
Finally this great tutorial solved my problems. Its in spanish but hey, we have google translator.
