According to the OP,

   As far as i know quite some distributions use /usr/lib64 to use
   both 64bit and 32bit (in /usr/lib) libraries. However,
   distributions who do not support 32bit libs at all only use

The fix I suggested was to use /usr/lib64 if that directory exists,
and /usr/lib otherwise.  Do you think it is not right?
