Ok, so the reason things are done the way they are right now is  
because I followed debian on amd64. They use the symlink and for  
32bit backwards compatibility they setup a chroot. To me this seems  
like a much better idea than packaging both 32bit and 64bit apps for  
arch64. Also the symlink is supposed to be the other way around from / 
lib64 to /lib i've been meaning to fix that...
