I'm currently looking at the amd64 profile, which is quite complicated.
I'll have to look through some code to see where e.g. get_libdir gets
the libdir from.  The idea: if we would empty the amd64 profile to be
like e.g. the x86 profile, would it just do what we want without having
to change anything such that we do not affect gentoo-x86.
