java is going to be stress if we have to support both a 64bit and 32bit
jre... especially since azureus needs a 64bit SWT to work and such. i'd
say that java stuff should probably not use $(get_libdir), or (almost)
anything that ends up in /opt. that is, indeed, a good question that i
hadnt thought of.
the chunk of the FHS that mentions lib64 notes that 64bit libraries
should go there... so if it isnt a library and lives in lib, you might
also not want to use $(get_libdir)... but that would all depend on how
jstubbs eventually implements multilib dependency handling in portage,
so it might just be safer to use $(get_libdir) even then to prevent file
collisions. at the very least, it shouldnt cause problems on
non-multilib systems since "$(get_libdir)" will always equal "lib" on
them, and you dont have to worry about collisions. ;p
