dev-ros/rviz fails when compiling the SIP bindings. It tries to link against librviz, but looks for it in the wrong directory ('lib' instead of 'lib64').

Reproducible: always

Patch shows where the wrong path comes from. It fixes the problem on amd64, but is clearly not the right solution as it would break non-64 bit systems.
