it is possible to still have /lib/modules, but have your modules in
/usr/lib/modules.  Follow issue 2 from the wiki page mentioned in the
news.  There is a find command to tell you what is in /lib that is not
owned.  The grep command will tell you what pacman thinks should be in
/lib, if you have something that is in there that isn't glibc, either
pacman -R it or rebuild it with a fixed pkgbuild that puts them in
