Yes, right, I keep making that mistake.

I'm not sure either.

I think the current use of $(LIBDIR)/fs/... is correct -- assuming you
actually set LIBDIR to the correct thing (which would
be /usr/lib/$target on a multiarch system).

In the meantime I think defaulting to autodetecting /usr/lib
vs. /usr/lib64 would make things continue to work. multiarch is more of
a packaging thing and the config snippets allow maintainers to do the
right thing).
