The reason that LFS uses the /usr/lib64 symlink is because many packages 
assume that they should use /usr/lib64.  LFS is not a multilib system, 
but many packages make that assumption.  For us, everything should go in 
/usr/lib (or /lib).  The symlinks make that happen.

It would be really nice if the libtool included in many packages didn't 
bother to say that the library appears to be moved.  That's quite 
irritating.
