I get that on my distro too, but as no-one else complained I didn't open 
a ticket.

The attached diffs fix things for me.

I can open a ticket if this is OK for commit,but not tested on any other 
distro than Mandrake 2006.0. Other systems may not use the /lib64 
prefix. It could be make more intelligent to check for the existance of 
those directories too I guess.
