20 Did you in fact have any 32 bit programs/libraries installed?
21
22 I knew I had none before I started the migration, so I just skipped item
23 11 and removed the symlinks manually. All the stuff left in /lib was
24 either arch-independent (eg /lib/firmware), or not subject to
25 linking/loading (eg /lib/modules), or glibc multiarch stuff (libm,
26 libnss, yada yada).
27
28 So far, no problems at all after the migration.
