Thanks for testing. Pushed as follows:

    libebl: Try harder to find backend library in bin and lib origin paths.

    eblopenbackend tries to find libraries based on the $ORIGIN/../$LIB/
    path. But depending on whether the system is multilib or multiarch
    this doesn't always work. On multilib systems $LIB is always just one
    directory deep (it is either .../lib or .../lib64) but on multiarch
    systems it can be multiple directories deep (.../lib/x86_64-linux-gnu).
    This means that on multiarch systems $ORIGIN/../$LIB only works for
    binaries (where origin is .../bin/), but not for libraries.

    Most of the time it still works because of RPATH which is tried afterwards.
    But RPATH processing does not always work reliable.

    So try multiple paths first. The first time using the $ORIGIN as if it
    came from an executable (in bin/) and then using the $ORIGIN as if it
    came from an library (in lib[64]/ or lib/<arch>/). So first time using
    ../$LIB and second time just with the elfutils EBL_SUBDIR.

    The first is what we do now and always work on multilib systems. The
    second try works when loading relative to a library whether on a multilib
    or multiarch system.

    Then we use the same fallback (not using any path) we used already
    (to take advantage of any RPATH or LD_LIBRARY_PATH setting).
