Indeed, thanks for correcting me.

It happens that if you are in 64-bit Arch, you will build for PCSX2
32-bit plugins. If you are in 32-bit Arch, you will also build 32-bit
plugins. The difference is that [multilib] system (only for 64-bit
system) has 32-bit lib files at /usr/lib32 - separated from 64-bit lib

If the plugins are 32-bit, it's logical to put them in /usr/lib/pcsx2
in 32-bit system. But in 64-bit system, I'm not sure if they whether I
should put them in /usr/lib or /usrlib32/ (inside "pcsx2" folder, of

Installing this package's plugin folder differently according to
architecture seems weird. - I could be wrong.
