Libraries for the native OS _should_ reside in /usr/lib.  Libraries

linux_ia32, etc.

if freebsd has by default only one lib/ under /usr (which doesn't sound
unreasonable, but make sure you talked to david o'brien, peter wemm, etc)
then you should just have this, nothing breaks and no native amd64 binary
ever has to care about other library paths.

        Humans love to categorize and organize things. We break up time into
        hours, days and years. Everything has to have a name, a history, an
        understanding of it's origins and must be indexed somewhere on Google.
