Don't. CMake is correct.
The primary location for libraries on amd64 is (/usr)/lib64 and you
should compile your code for that. Only when packaging you must move
files into (/usr)/lib because dpkg can't handle links in one package
(libc6) being directories in others.
If you don't compile for /usr/lib64 then you break compatibility with
other linux systems.
