Linking cupsd...

making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC

I'm trying to compile and install cups-2.0.2 following the  
instructions in the BLFS-7.7 html document online.

I think this is a 64 bit specific problem.  For starters, why is there  
a /usr/lib64 directory and a /usr/lib directory and what is supposed  
to go in which directory?
