It appears that this ticket effectively stalled two years ago for lack
of testers on 64-bit platforms.  However I believe that recently we have
had a big increase in the amount of testing going on on AMD64 and even
Win64.  The fact that we haven't seen a lot of Trac tickets about
incorrect 'lib install paths' (not exactly sure what that means)
suggests that whatever we're doing now is sufficient and that this
ticket can be closed.

Could anyone who is familiar with those platforms tell us if we are
doing the right thing with respect to installation paths?

Additional note:  Although the comment which led to the creation of this
RT is found in config/init/defaults.pm, I suspect that any fix would go
into config/init/install.pm.

Thank you very much.
