That depends on the contents of the file. In this example the file is
architecture independent so duplicating it per target is stupid.

In other cases there would be a list of available plugins for an
application. And for every target triplet the list of plugins can
differ. In those cases adding the triplet to either the dir or the
filename makes sense.

E.g. /etc/libfoo/plugins-x86_64-linux-gnu.d/
