I saw the part about 'dreaming up something better' and figured if a
couple of beers can't conjure up an idea, Kyle would move on to more
exciting things. :-p
I figured if he poked upstream about it, they might be able to fix it
Regardless, I poked Jiri Olsa about it and he isn't familar enough with
multilib to know how to fix it correctly. There isn't some doc floating
around with best multilib practices or something is there?
Well, the canonical answer would be to stop trying to poorly reinvent
something awful, ie: autoconf, which already allows distros to set all
this stuff in a standard way... For example, the stuff in
/usr/lib/rpm/redhat/macros:%configure which lets us muck with $libdir
libdir is really the only thing with variation across distros that can't
be handled in other ways, since the paths get hardcoded.
