cabal packaging and --libdir

I think a --libdir option is needed in Cabal to help packagers
that need to specific where libraries are installed.

For example Fedora Core x86_64 (amd64) arch 64bit libs should be installed
under $prefix/lib64, whereas cabal assumes $prefix/lib.

Could a --libdir please be added or is there another way?
