   I think this would be a case of the tail wagging the dog.  There
   are over 100 GNU/Linux distributions and I don't think Emacs should
   have to test for each of them.  Aren't there some standards that
   the distributions conform to?

No, sadly.  Host libraries are supposed to be put in /usr/lib, and not
/usr/lib64 if the host is 64-bit, so the best/simplest solution is
probably to not use /usr/lib64 at all, and mention in etc/PROBLEMS
that on 64-bit GNU/Linux systems that install 64-bit libraries in
/usr/lib64 (and 32-bit in /usr/lib) that one has to modify
m/amdx86-64.h or something along those lines.

Another way might be to use the output of `gcc -print-search-dirs',
and check in which directory crti.o exists in.  

My two groszy.
