If it is an x86_64 box and /lib64 is present, then use lib64 in the makespec files, however if not found, then use the original /lib designation for the Qt lib location. That would have caught and corrected this snafu while still leaving the old behavior unaltered for x86_64 boxes with installs in /lib. I have to get smarter on writing/understanding conditionals such as the mkspec generations -- at least then when something fails later, I don't have to waste 1/2 hunting and picking through the tree.
