Default Where to install LD_PRELOAD libraries

I'm currently reviewing VirtualGL:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=834127


It installs a number of libraries that get used with LD_PRELOAD via a wrapper
script. While it is convenient to place them in %{_libdir} so that you don't
have to specify the full path in LD_PRELOAD, it seems to me that they
shouldn't be in %{_libdir} but in %{_libdir}/VirtualGL and then specify the
full path in LD_PRELOAD.


Any dissenting opinions?

I'd prefer to see them under %{_libdir}/VirtualGL and deal with any
required changes. It just feels cleaner.

Anyway, these are my 2 cents,
Niels
