there is /usr/lib64 symlink but no /usr/local/lib64

please do not slap me too hard (only so that I feel your warm carrying

is there a rationale for: on amd64 Debian systems having

/lib64 -> /lib
/usr/lib64 -> /usr/lib

but no similar one for /usr/local/lib64, so that directory
/usr/local/lib64 gets created if anyone (with enough rights) does 'make
install' pointing there; and we do not include /usr/local/lib64 into ldconfig
path (by default), so those libraries 'get lost'

aren't we diverging from FHS:

If directories /lib<qual> or /usr/lib<qual> exist, the equivalent directories must also exist in /usr/local.


thanks for the input
