Generally it'll be the same as your OS version, though there are some 
binary apps that may be 32-bit only. To tell if a given executable or 
library is 32-bit or 64-bit, you can use the file command. For example,

$ file build/openal-info
build/openal-info: ELF 64-bit LSB executable ...

$ file build32/libopenal.so.1.16.0
build32/libopenal.so.1.16.0: ELF 32-bit LSB shared object ...
