Before multiarch, on mipsel, the N64 bit libraries is installed into
/usr/lib64, N32 is to /usr/lib32, so it can successful build.

If we have mips64el before multiarch (for lenny for example), then,
the path will be the same situation with mipsel,
N64 -> /usr/lib64
N32 -> /usr/lib32
O32 -> /usr/lib
So if built with -L/usr/lib, it will failed to build.

For mips64el with multilib and multiarch support
N64 -> /usr/lib/mips64el-linux-gnuabi64
N32 -> /usr/lib32
O32 -> /usr/lib

It will still failed to build if with -L/usr/lib
