I haven't seen a distro not have lib64, but I haven't used Arch either
(except for the time when I tried it and couldn't find something like
dhclient or dhcpcd to get online, didn't have 64bit then). I also
haven't seen a distro without dev or devel packages either -- unless
you guys are installing the devel headers with the main packages (not
necessary for people who aren't compiling software), I'd think you
have to put them somewhere?
