Gentoo uses basically the same directory layout as the experimental 
ppc64 archive on alioth, with the exeception that 32 bit support is 
not yet fully working in Gentoo.

It is of course true that some other distributions put 32 bit libraries
in /usr/lib and 64 bit libraries in /usr/lib64. I will not follow that 
path because for a native 64 bit distribution this will lead to an 
almost empty /usr/lib directory while all the native libraries are 
in /usr/lib64. In other words this would mean to change the name of
the well established '/usr/lib' hierarchy to '/usr/lib64'. 
This would be ugly, at least IMHO.
