Libraries in /usr/X11R6/lib64 but not in /usr/X11R6/lib for the AMD X86-64 cpu



I recently installed Adobe's acroread.  It didn't work, because the
libraries /usr/X11R6/lib/libXp.so.6, /usr/X11R6/lib/libXp.so,
and /usr/X11R6/lib/libXp.so.6.2 are missing.  Similar libraries exist
in /usr/X11R6/lib64.  I copied in these libraries (for /usr/lib/X11R6)
from a version of FC3 for X86, and (to my great surprise!) acroread now
works.

Is there some reason why these libraries are missing?  Is it harmful in
some way for them to be on the system.  If so, how?  Is there a plan to
release an upgrade to FC3 for the X86-64 processors which would contain
the missing libraries?  I strongly suspect that these are not the only
libraries missing from the /usr/lib and /usr/X11/lib directories.

Many Thanks:
