Does the Kace agent have an intel requirement for Macintosh installs?

When deploying the Kace agent from Kace's provisioning to a non Intel Mac, we get the error below.

Intel is an installation requirement.  I believe the last agent that supported PowerPC was one of the 5.4 versions.

OS X 10.6 – 10.10 are supported, but it very well could be 64-bit Intel processors also. I don't think I have a non-64 bit system to test with.  I'll check into it.

One option for inventorying this system would be agentless inventory.
