versus :

('64bit', 'ELF')

You can also try the unix file command (eg: from a terminal):

$ file `which python2.5`
/sware/exp/fable/standalone/redhate4-a64/bin/python: ELF 64-bit LSB 
executable, AMD x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), for GNU/Linux 2.4.0, 
dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped

...etc. We needed this for generating the .so library file name for 
ctypes, and got the answer from comp.lang.python. I hope it also works 
for OS X.
