[gmx-developers] [Patch] Gromacs 4.5.5 installs libraries to wrong directory on 64bit

The patch was rejected because lib/lib32/lib64 is set up in a
distribution-specific way: while on RHEL/SuSE lib is for 32bit
libraries and lib64 for 64 bit, on  debian/ubuntu there is a separate
lib32 and lib64, moreover lib64 is a symlink to lib.

We really don't want to get into dealing with these kind of things
ourselves and end up with 10 conditionals for 20 different platforms.
Ideally CMake should take care of this.

However, as we set the lib install path like this:


which means that we do not let CMake put libraries where it thinks
they should go, it is indeed a subtle bug.

I think both issue 591 and 623 are related, right?
