This is my ld.so.conf:
include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf

No sign of eith /lib64 nor /usr/lib64... (and there is nothing in the .d 
folder of interest). The "/usr/lib/qt3/lib" is a result of me having the 
32-bit version of qt installed along with the 64-bit version.

Perhaps a certain package you have installed specifically added the 
/usr/lib64 path to that file? Checking on a i586 box I use, it doesn't 
have the /usr/lib path in there either...

I know! I must have been on crack when I make the second set of changes. 
Just goes to show there is more than one way to skin a cat.

Just tidyed them both up and will submit to track sortly. I also noticed 
an assumption of lib in the the has_header function that I missed. 
Doesn't really affect me, but worth fixing anyways...

My default make install still puts libs in /usr/local/lib/ tho' which 
should really be addressed but I can't see where to set that in the 
configure scripts...
