Seems pretty expected. All distros that get it right have some sort of 
mechanism to always call configure with --libdir='${prefix}/lib64'
(or similar, but still with lib64); rpm for example has 
%configure which expands to all the fluff needed or wanted by the 
distro, including correct libdir for a given %arch.
