How to tell whether CPU supports x64?

I have a remote server, and I'd like to know if it will support
64-bit instructions. Is there some way I can tell? It's running 32-bit
FreeBSD right now.

>From dmesg.boot:
	Timecounter "i8254" frequency 1193182 Hz quality 0
	CPU: Intel(R) Xeon(TM) CPU 2.40GHz (2387.76-MHz 686-class CPU)
	Origin = "GenuineIntel"  Id = 0xf29  Stepping = 9
	Logical CPUs per core: 2
	real memory  = 1073676288 (1023 MB)
	avail memory = 1041502208 (993 MB)
	ACPI APIC Table: <DELL   PE1750  >
	FreeBSD/SMP: Multiprocessor System Detected: 2 CPUs
	cpu0 (BSP): APIC ID:  0
	cpu1 (AP): APIC ID:  1

I've had no luck trying to search for the id/stepping. Would the
feature list show x64 support?
