I believe the intent is that this won't be supported.  mysql i386 will
conflict with mysql amd64.  To do otherwise would introduce quite a few
other issues.

As for 64bit libraries in /lib64, it's just short-sighted and kind of
silly.  Additionally, the requirement I've seen has been the location of
the loader, which we can conform with using symlinks.  The libraries
themselves I don't believe are constrained to a specific location (as it
should be).
