Heh.  That would be FC3 x86-64 edition.  Without any empirical data, I'd
say that lion's share of myth users use it, since many follow Jarod's
guide.  Which would mean that Axel would need to fix it for packaging
anyway... Better to catch it upstream, eh? ;)

Don't get me wrong - I'd rather the configure script enumerated the lib
path from /etc/ld.so.conf or something... that would be cleaner... of
course, now you're probably going to want a patch or something. ;)
Maybe I'll get around to it, but it isn't itching right now...
