On this Fedora box, /usr/lib/ and /usr/lib64/ are different directories.  
/usr/lib64/ is much bigger.
There is also /usr/libexec/

I thought the idea was that most stuff went into usr and only the 32 or 64 
bit specific stuff went into lib32 or lib64.  I don't know where I picked 
that up.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
