That would be uname -m, for UNIX-like stuff.
But that wouldn't say x64:
(jessie)rene at frodo ~ % uname --help
Usage: uname [OPTION]...
Print certain system information. With no OPTION, same as -s.
-a, --all print all information, in the following order,
except omit -p and -i if unknown:
-s, --kernel-name print the kernel name
-n, --nodename print the network node hostname
-r, --kernel-release print the kernel release
-v, --kernel-version print the kernel version
-m, --machine print the machine hardware name
-p, --processor print the processor type or "unknown"
-i, --hardware-platform print the hardware platform or "unknown"
-o, --operating-system print the operating system
--help display this help and exit
--version output version information and exit

(jessie)rene at frodo ~ %
And note LO does not only support i386 and amd64 and there is more 64-bit
archs (see http://buildd.debian.org/libreoffice), so doing a
32bit -> x32 (or nothing)
64bit -> x64
mapping would be simply wrong, you ideally you put uname -m's output there.
But honestly, I don't see the need in this (at least for Linux)
