It's a relic from the first people with x86_64 systems, that changed all
the original %{_libdir}/foo macros to {_prefix}/lib/foo ones instead of
fixing the script bits that broke on multilib systems (and they didn't
even bother to change the doc, so it's still stating %{_libdir} as when
I wrote it originally)
