How to find out bitness of gss library?

Hi All

Oracle's Java includes a bridge that can use the native libgss, 32 bit 
Java uses 32 bit lib, and 64 bit uses 64 bit. In our testing 
environment, we call krb5-config first to detect if native libgss is 
available, and run the Java tests if yes.

The problem is, a 64 bit Linux system can have both 32 bit and 64 bit 
libraries installed, and we would like to find out if the installed 
libgss is one, the other, or both, so that we can determine which 
version of Java we can test. Is there a way to find out this?
