fixed papi 5.5.1 ebuild

By default PAPI assumes that libpfm.a is found in ${EPREFIX}/usr/lib, which is no longer the case following the removal of this symlink in the 17.1 profile.

Fix is to provide --with-pfm-libdir="${EPREFIX}/usr/lib64" as in attached ebuild.

I have only attached the one ebuild as example but this bug appears to affect all versions in portage.

Um, what if your LIBDIR happens to be something other than "lib64"?

Please attach the entire failing build log to this bug report.
