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/,
