Originally, yes.  However, I would like amd64-linux in prefix to behave
like any other installation, hence just use lib and usr/lib (die
multilib die) like we do on x64-solaris as well.

There used to be a bug on it, I guess I thought it was fixed, but it
pops up again.  baselayout-prefix should do this.

That feels no good.  Maybe we can just investigate how to get rid of
lib64 in amd64-linux profiles, as part of a nice summer-cleaning in
linux land.
