comment How does OSX run 64bit Binaries while running on a 32bit Kernel?
Thank you very much for your explanation, I can't upvote yet (not enough reputation), and I can't accept two answers as well, but both you and Gilles made it a little bit clearer to me!

And all I want is to figure out what stands for that module-of-insanity ;)

It is not a mistake, you may try it if you can. I was running x86 kernel, not x64, so it was still able to run x64 software. I've already switched to x64_86 architecture now, but the output of uname -a under x86 kernel likely was something like that: Darwin MacMini.local 11.1.0 Darwin Kernel Version 11.1.0: Tue Jul 26 16:07:11 PDT 2011; root:xnu-1699.22.81~1/RELEASE_i386 i386

Because I was pretty sure that I was running x64 kernel so the only software I had installed was x64 and OS run them perfectly well. But a little time ago I typed 'uname -a' in my Terminal and was surprised. Also, Wikipedia confirms this - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86-64#Mac_OS_X
