Ok. And libtool doesn't seem to add it by itself. I believe that's
where the problem resides.

Sure. On the long term I wouldn't recommend adding it anyway: it's
already being looked for by the linker.

No. Debian does not have a /usr/lib64 directory, 64bit versions are in
/usr/lib. For biarch system, /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu will be used.

Well, the real fix seems to me to fix

sys_lib_dlsearch_path_spec="/lib /usr/lib $lt_ld_extra"


sys_lib_dlsearch_path_spec="/lib /usr/lib /usr/lib64 $lt_ld_extra"

on Fedora systems.

I believe in the current state of Fedora it's libtool that should be
blamed. Or Fedora and libtool should talk to each other to determine
how libtool is supposed to discover that /usr/lib64 is in the standard
research path.
