I don't use the configure script, but I think you can
specify the lib dir via --with-lib=lib64.  (The same can be
done using config.mak or passing parameters directly to
make with the lib argument, e.g. make lib=lib64 ...)

If I'm reading correctly, that would apply to all packages
which were configured via one of the --with-$package=$path
