configure/install question.

I would like to install GDB as a 'gdb64' since I am building GDB as a
64bit binary on PPC.

In the configure script I found

  --program-prefix=PREFIX prepend PREFIX to installed program names
  --program-suffix=SUFFIX append SUFFIX to installed program names
                          run sed PROGRAM on installed program names

So if I passed --program-suffix=64 to the configure script
(/src/configure) will it install GDB as 'gdb64' ??
