Florian's suggestion is correct: debian is changing some paths beginning
with debian wheezy to improve multi-arch support.

While on sparc this may not matter and maybe not needed, it's probably
done on all platforms to reduce maintenance.

I.e. libc startup files and such are now in /usr/lib/<arch-triplet>.
Debian based distros like Ubuntu also do that in recent versions
already. At least on 12.10 here I have these files
in /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu although it's a 32 bit only system.
