Re: [OT] /usr/lib64?? (was: Re: [xml] Patch: installing Python into actual site-packages)

Libraries for the native OS _should_ reside in /usr/lib.
Libraries for non-native binaries _should_ exist in either
/usr/compat/[arch] or /usr/local/compat/[arch], where arch ==
freebsd_amd64, freebsd_ia64, 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.

FreeBSD uses /usr/compat/ia32 (iirc) to handle this, but does indeed
only have one /usr/lib for natively compiled 64 bit libraries.  -sc
