   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?

If it works, I think it is right.  I was under the impression that it
didn't work, and people were comming up with strange solutions that
would check what distribution of GNU/Linux was being used and pick the
directory that way.
