It is not forbid to put o32 libraries to /lib in mips64 port in policy
(Fix me if I am wrong).
While as ldso will always looks for /lib and /usr/lib/, thus if we put
it in /libo32,
it will still work and packages built on other distributions(like
packages converted by alian).
And the Debian package would not work on other distributions where
/libo32 is not supported,
Since we have multiarch support, this is not a big problem ;)
