The fix was for the other way around. If kde-config --libsuffix returns "", 
then it would default to auto and then the autodetection would detect the 
invalid lib64 dirs.

So I understand you correctly, that kdelibs is broken for you, right? Because
the fix was for kde!libs - I'm still not sure your fix would regress that 
situation again.
