And note that not all systems use the biarch model of libdir becoming
lib64.  There are systems where 64-bit is native and the 32-bit flavor
is the guest lib32.  Also there is a multiarch model where the
directories name is lib/arch-os.  The configure script provides a
standard interface used by many different package implementations to
produce the desired filesystem layout.
