The "we" refered to another project (not numpy) where we needed to 
distinguish 32 bit from 64 bit platforms. We have code for picking which 
shared library file to use similar to that below.  Apologies if I've 
confused the issue.


if sys.platform == "linux2":
     if platform.architecture()[0] == '32bit':
         libfilename = 'libKLT32.so'
     if platform.architecture()[0] == '64bit':
         libfilename = 'libKLT64.so'
if sys.platform == "win32":
     libfilename = 'klt.dll'

_libraries['klt_bin'] = CDLL(
         os.path.join( os.path.split(__file__)[0],
	libfilename )

# If you still don't have it you probably have a mac??
