I dunno why people prefer to complicate things using lib64 AND lib,
rather than using a simple compat directory for 32bit binary
compatibility. But whatever...
Here's what libexo does: It uses AM_PATH_PYTHON() from the automake
package to determine the various python dirs (check the automake source
and/or docs for details). Then it installs the pyexo.py file to the
$(pythondir) and the __init__.py and _exo.la files to
$(pyexecdir)/exo-0.3/ to be able to install various major versions
side-by-side (this is somewhat the suggested way).
So, your python installation reports both lib and lib64 dirs for
whatever reason (check AM_PATH_PYTHON).
