That doesn't prevent it from searching /lib though.  My
experience has been that libtool very easily gets confused, and
frequently uses the wrong architecture library if it finds it first.
Perhaps this has been remedied in newer versions of libtool than what
I'm usually using.

Perhaps, but it's pretty common now days.  It's been the norm on
Solaris (and other OSes) for a long time.  We're probably going to
have to live with multilib in some form on x86/x86_64 for at least
another 5-10 years.
