Altering %{_libdir}

One of the problems of packaging for mono is that it expects libs et al
to be in /usr/lib and not /usr/lib64. This causes lots of problems.

Is there a way to say in the spec something akin to

if %{_libdir} != '/usr/lib'
  ${_libdir} = '/usr/lib';

Whenever I've tried to use --libdir inside of the CXX definition,
something gets confused and the software refuses to build.
