libdir and python on x86_64



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----

I'm running into a build problem with exo on x86_64. 

See: 
http://extras64.linux.duke.edu/failed/development/exo/0.3.0-5/x86_64/exo-0.3.0-5.failure.log

Whats happening is that I have:

%{_libdir}/python*/site-packages

in my files. That works under x86 and ppc just fine. 
However, on x86_64, %{_libdir} == /usr/lib64/, but python still is
installing it's package files under /usr/lib/

So, whats the answer here?

- - Hard code:
/usr/lib/python*/site-packages/

(This means the package won't be relocatable anywhere, rpmlint
complains, etc)

- - Setup a special case for x86_64:

%ifarch %{ix86} ia64
/usr/lib/python*/site-packages
%else
%{_libdir}/python*/site-packages
%endif

(This means x86_64 won't be relocatable, etc)

- - Modify the configure in the package to handle the diffrent libdir on
x86_64 and install under /usr/lib64 as it's expecting? Or possibly the
python Makefile with a patch only applied to x86_64 builds?

- - Something else?

I don't have a x86_64 test machine, so it's not easy for me to test
these possible solutions there.
