Assuming a 32 bit system, binaries /usr/bin, libs /usr/lib
           64 bit                  /usr/bin,      /usr/lib64

On a 64 bit system if a library comes from a vendor who has only
provided a 32 bit binary with a lib or a binary which requires a 32 bit
lib, then /usr/lib is used.

It's a carte blanche approach for everything.
