I thought there was a way but couldn't remember what it was.  I only 
used that once.

root@fireball / # file /root/foldingathome/fah6
/root/foldingathome/fah6: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 
(SYSV), statically linked, for GNU/Linux 2.6.9, stripped
root@fireball / #

So I guess we know now that that is 64 bit.
