I've never gotten to the bottom of that. On my 10.7.3 box, here is the
from some relevant commands:
uname -m => x86_64
arch => i386
machine => i486
It's configurable somehow. The man page for arch(1) says system settings
are in /System/Library/archSettings. But, that file doesn't exist on my
BTW. The Open jdk ARCH will be changing from amd64 to x86_64.
