Um. Is there really a bug here?

I thought Mamoru had it correct, and the bug was in the spec: it
declared noarch but used %_libdir, which is not valid and makes no
sense, %_libdir being inherently arch-dependent. It shouldn't be
expected for %_libdir to 'work' in a noarch build, AFAICT, and if
anything, the behaviour of always expanding to /usr/lib for a noarch
build is probably the most sensible thing to do.
