Yes. Look at your config.h. Assuming you're on an x86 box, the defines 
should look something like:

Note especially the DOUBLE_WORD_* defines.

#define OS_TYPE "unix"

#define VM_HOST "i686-pc-linux-gnu"
#define VM_HOST_CPU "i686"
/* #undef       VM_HOST_VENDOR */
#define VM_HOST_OS "linux-gnu"

/* #undef       WORDS_BIGENDIAN */
/* #undef       DOUBLE_WORD_ALIGNMENT */
