#144 Usage of the wrong libdir

Hello,
I am trying to package gretl for fedora to get it into our repository. During the build process I noticed that there are many files placed in the /usr/lib directory instead into the /usr/lib64 directory, what should be normal on a 64 bit system.
Therefore we removed the hardcoded libdir=${exec_prefix}/lib and replaced it with libdir=@libdir@ to be able to build consistent packages on both arches.
I am not sure if the patch at the moment covers all those places where the libdir is not set in the relative way.

Hope this could be solved and is helpful to promote this nice tool.

Greetings,

Johanens

    Thanks for the report, and the patch. I've applied a variant of
    the patch in CVS and I think things should be OK now.
