prefix + lib/ = libdir, see attached patch.
actually I think this is still not the proper place but it's a better default than not taking multilib into account at all. Thanks for considering.
This used to be this way but we changed it due to some problems Kay found. What problems does the current way cause?

install scripts into $(prefix)/lib instead of $libdir
We don't want scripts going into lib64...
It causes no real problem, it's just that some of us get QA warnings when a package installs stuff in /usr/lib while it should have gone in /usr/lib64 (non respected autotools config switch, ...). Also admittedly shell scripts are not arch dependent, that's why I think they shouldn't be in /usr/lib* at all.
In any case, I'd be curious to know what were the problems when scripts were in /usr/lib64 since I've had no user report about anything broken yet.
