Argh, that's not right. On Ubuntu Hardy, or Debian derivatives, I believe
the 32-bit version of the libraries are under /usr/lib32 (unlike most other
distros, where the distinction is /usr/lib vs /usr/lib64 rather than /usr/lib32 
vs /usr/lib).

*I am not a Debian-derivative user*, but /usr/lib/ is probably
the 64-bit version and strictly speaking, quite irrelevant to wine (which needs
32-bit version of the libraries)?
