It is really ugly, also if I do admitt it could be usefull.
But, what about the other stuff inside of /lib directory?

This sstuff should fully do under /lib32?

For example /lib/modules on alpha would have 64 bit modules inside...

I would suggest /lib to be a real directory, and inside of there libraries
should de sym links, but this solution is ugly too, and could be a little
confusing for unexperienced people.

So I have some esitation, but I do not have something better to propose.
