If people are adding site-specific bits, then having them add a full
path is perfectly reasonable.  But in the configuration that we ship, it
makes a lot more sense to have 
  paths=/usr/$LIB/libfoo.so /usr/$LIB/libbar.so

and then the right thing will happen depending on whether or not you're
running a 32bit or a 64bit binary.
