Not unless I specifically tell cmake to compile using X86_86 as the
arch.. Hang on..

I set the CMAKE_OSX_ARCHS to x86_64 and compiled and reran the test

Is64Bits shows true which is correct. I was really asking if the
Is64Bits was referring to the CPU Capability or to the OS or to how
CMake was built. I can have any combination of the 3 on OS X.
