I suspect that /usr/i486-linux-libc5/ is the wrong place to put it.
Someone should correct me, but I think this is for old old programs
which expect to be linked against libc5, which is something current 
programs do not use. 

Now, where it -should- go, I'm not sure :) Mine (on a RH box) is this:

[hobbit aloss ~]$ ls -l `locate`
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           16 Oct 12  2000 /usr/lib/ ->
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root        25416 Aug 12  2000 /usr/lib/
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        19882 Aug  6  2005 /usr/lib/

(Ignore the date on the last line: the box had been time-travelling before
I got it.)

So /usr/lib for me. That /usr is what RH use for the Gnome "prefix". 
I think SuSE's prefix for Gnome is /opt or /opt/something. So
perhaps /opt/usr/lib or /opt/gnome/usr/lib or something of that 
sort is there on your machine already? Not anything with libc5 
in though. :)
