Currently /lib64 is a symlink to the /lib dir.  Same goes for
/usr/lib64 and /usr/X11R6/lib64.  Most libs are install in the
"lib" dir and also searched there.  One of the exceptions is
ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 which is in the /lib64 dir.

The problem however is that when building some packages (glibc,
gcc, xfree86) they install packages in the lib64 dir.  And then
when generating the package it tries to find that file in the lib
dir which of course fails.
