There is an RPM bug which causes this kind of behaviour --
if /etc/rpm/platform specifies a 64-bit platform, then %{_libdir} is set
to /usr/lib64 even when building for a 32-bit target.

A workaround is to edit /etc/rpm/platform before building 32-bit
packages on a 64-bit machine. And then remember to put it back again
before running 'yum update' on that machine :)
