This appears to actually be a Libtool issue, not Automake.  Cc'ing the
relevant mailing list.

The key message appears to be:

which says that Fedora patches Libtool to recognize /usr/lib64 as a system
library path so that Libtool won't generate rpath references to it.

If that's still the case, it seems like that's something that Libtool
should add in the upstream source.  It seems unlikely to me that a system
would have a /usr/lib64 directory that isn't part of the standard search
path; either that path pattern won't be used at all (as with Debian/Ubuntu
multiarch) or it will be the 64-bit multiarch system library path.
