The Debian folks will tell you that they did it right and everyone else
screwed up horribly O_o. Anyway, it looks like they put the 32 bit stuff in
lib32, so if a distro has a lib32, then you can figure the 64 bit stuff is
in lib. Those are the only two variations I know of. What 64 bit windows
does, I have no idea.
32-bit (compat) libraries 64-bit (native) libraries Fedora Core /lib/,
/usr/lib/ /lib64/, /usr/lib64/ Debian /lib32/, /usr/lib32/ /lib/,
