Interesting/strange :( Intel's specification page for that processor,
does say "Intel 64: Yes". I don't know why that's not reflected in the 
cpuctl identify output; it seems like it should be...

While it seems like there should be a way to tell from the cpuctl 
output, I guess you could look up the specs for the other processor and
see whether it supports Intel 64/AMD64.
