if, by 64bit, you mean x86_64 (e.g. amd64) then yes, when you install the 
64bit x86_64 version you get 32bit compat as well...

you'll notice both /lib and /lib64, for instance.

works quite well, though not all build systems have caught up to this new 
nuance and you sometimes have to coax ./configure a bit more than usual when 
building stuff from source.
