I think the commits that caused issue with arch should make a test of /lib and
/usr/lib before hardcoding the /lib64 stuff. 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.

Thanks Darrell, Tim for your help!
