Filesystem Hierarchy Standard

4.8 /usr/lib<qual> : Alternate format libraries (optional)

4.8.1 Purpose

/usr/lib<qual> performs the same role as /usr/lib for an alternate binary format, except that the symbolic links /usr/lib<qual>/sendmail and /usr/lib<qual>/X11 are not required.[footnote 22]

[22] The case where /usr/lib and /usr/lib<qual> are the same (one is a symbolic link to the other) these files and the per-application subdirectories will exist.
