I don't think there's much room for argument at all, the FHS definition of
/lib is pretty clear. :)

Yes, this does cause problems for autotools and the like when it comes time
to install, since this FHS-mandated split between /usr/lib and /lib isn't
directly supported by automake.  A burden we must bear, unless someone wants
to fix automake.
