Native libraries are in /lib and /usr/lib, non-native libraries are
under /emul.  For example, on AMD64, IA-32 libraries live in

While I happen to prefer the traditional IRIX setup (/lib, /lib32,
/lib64), the argument in favour of the Debian setup is that it allows
multiple sets of libraries to be installed (think 64-bit SPARC with an
IA-32 emulator and binary compatibility with Solaris).
