Is there any need to embed the `ia' bit in the name? Why not just
/lib/lsb32 (or /lib/lsb32compat though I don't think we even need the
compat suffix). The same directories can then be used for sparc64 and
ppc64 systems (no need to install both ia32 and ppc32 libraries on the
same machine).

Same comment as above for the name, why not just:
