yes, its needed. When using rpmbuild --target=i386 on RHEL5, the _lib
macro gets expanded as lib64, not lib. So I needed this hack to avoid
that rpm bug.

I know. The problem isn't installing them, its building them. I need
to do the build of both sets of RPMs on a x86_64 box. That did not
work with the existing spec file.
