libraries compiling into /usr/lib


dear all,

i'm compiling glib2 right now on a x86_64 architecture. fact is, instead of being installed into the /usr/lib64 directory, they are installed into /usr/lib.

and i don't get why.

i've done a
Code:
export ARCH=x86_64
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib64
and my /etc/ld.so.conf file looks like:
Code:
/usr/local/lib
/usr/X11R6/lib
/usr/x86_64-slackware-linux/lib
/usr/lib64
/usr/local/lib64
/lib64
/usr/X11R6/lib64
/opt/kde/lib
/usr/lib64/qt/lib
i'm configuring using
Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr \
            --sysconfdir=/etc
...what am i doing wrong?

Why not use a lib directory, like /usr/x86_64/lib
so you configure as :
./configure --prefix=/usr/x86_64

i will actually use
Code:
./configure --prefix=/usr \
  --sysconfdir=/etc
  --libdir=/usr/lib64
however i'm still rather puzzled on why ./configure isn't picking up the settings of my /etc/ld.so.conf file...

Anyway, I suggest you to use keefaz suggestion that will also allow you to have also executable files separated by platform.
Oh you can also try seeing/modifing the generated Makefile to see or change the variable that configure uses to determine the lib directory.

slamd64 is already buit with --prefix=/usr and --libdir=/usr/lib64, i prefer to stick that way, since i'm not building an os myself and there are common files (such as gtk+ for instance).

thank you.
