  Is this configurable for those distros that do NOT utilize lib64 for 64-bit
library packages? While openSuSE does put 64-bit libs in lib64, Archlinux puts
all libs lin 'libs' on 64-bit boxes. This needs to be configurable for just this
case. Otherwise always putting 64-bit libs in lib64 on boxes that do NOT use
lib64 will really screw up the library search and build system. Can it be
something like a --target option or a --with-64bit-lib-dirs= configure option?

  We don't want a one-size doesn't fit all solution. That would cause about an
equal number of problems as it purportedly resolves for those distros that put
64bit libs in libs.
