That's not actually what's said.  Hopefully you've already been
steered correctly with the perl command, but just to make sure you're
not going down the wrong path, you should only have
/lib/  If there's another one in /usr/lib, you've got
issues.  The other part about /usr/lib is to make sure that the gcc
you're about to compile looks in /usr/lib first for the glibc
startfiles in /usr/lib rather than in /tools/lib.

Of course, you probably already took Matthew's advice and are down the
road somewhere by now.
