If people want to break the directory structure that's their choice,
but I don't see a valid reason for doing it.

Nobody adds it to ld.so.conf since the directory doesn't exist at the
moment. People add /usr/local/lib or whatever the lib directory is,
and that will still be correct with the new scheme.

If there are environments that don't support it they can use some
other scheme. I don't think any Unix platform would have the problem.
