Is there any way to have configure test for a 64-bit system and then
put libraries in a default place, say /usr/local/lib64, instead of the
default /usr/local/lib as so many GNU packages do at the moment?

I know I can use ./configure --libdir=/usr/local/lib64 but would like
the package to take care of that.

I use prefix-specific files to accomplish this. By using different installation prefixes, then the appropriate settings are automatically picked up via the --prefix=/foo configure option. The file used is discovered like ${prefix}/share/ This works like a charm and usually works perfectly with packages using a modern configure script.
