RedHat does it with Daniel Reed's patch, which you did not like
(for good reasons).

Yes, ugly.

I'm happy to discuss better solutions.  Changing before 2.0 might be a
good idea.

"Historic practice"?  Honestly, I don't know.
Actually, Daniel gave good reasoning that /lib and /usr/lib
should not show up in the list _at all_ with -m64.

Hmm.  Still has /lib and /usr/lib in there.
Still, the value is no good for sys_lib_dlsearch_path_spec in a true
cross compilation environment, merely for sys_lib_search_path_spec.

I am seriously considering to add command line options to override (or
append/prepend) both of them.  Not only for linux.  Or apply whatever
else we can agree on.  But only if the end result is more cross compile

Input solicited.
