Currently we install the versioned libhandle into /lib by default,

uses libhandle this seems rather awkward to me.  From Mike's comments
in the past I think Gentoo already installs it into /usr anyway.

Is there anything speaking against moving all libraries to /usr and
switching Debian/Fedora to that aswell?
xfsdump uses it and xfsdump is installed into / by default right ? so libhandle needs to be in /lib so long as xfsdump is in /sbin.

Indeed, the makefile configuration currently builds it into /, while
the configure default uses /usr.  Yikes..

argh I did rpm -ql xfsprogs xfsdump | grep bin ... on a box that didn't have xfsdump installed. Argh.

Thanks for the catch Mike ;)
