Possible -- sure, but not useful except as an option for the initial
bootstrap that might not fully work with /lib64.
I've followed both SuSE and Red Hat making that mistake with their early
s390x distributions. They both now have the problem that they changed
to /lib64 installations, which makes it really hard to create 64 bit
packages that work in the old _and_ new distributions.
