Dude!  You had pre-approved these changes yourself, months ago.  You
even suggested them to me.

When you have a single system that can run all of o32, n32 and n64, it
is useful to be able to define LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH and
LD_LIBRARY64_PATH, that are used only for binaries of the
corresponding ABIs, overriding LD_LIBRARY_PATH, that is o32 for
backward-compatibility, but also used if the ABI-specific environment
variable isn't set.
