[packagers] syslinux discrepancy

I just updated my CentOS 4 box from syslinux 2.11 to the 3.51 package in
rpmforge. There seems to be a discrepancy as to where the syslinux directory
lives between the two packages. 

CentOS package:
[root at bing ~]# rpm -q syslinux
syslinux-2.11-1.x86_64

[root at bing ~]# rpm -ql syslinux
/usr/bin/gethostip
/usr/bin/lss16toppm
/usr/bin/ppmtolss16
/usr/bin/syslinux
/usr/lib/syslinux
/usr/lib/syslinux/copybs.com
/usr/lib/syslinux/isolinux-debug.bin
/usr/lib/syslinux/isolinux.bin
/usr/lib/syslinux/keytab-lilo.pl
/usr/lib/syslinux/memdisk
/usr/lib/syslinux/mkdiskimage
/usr/lib/syslinux/pxelinux.0
/usr/lib/syslinux/sys2ansi.pl
/usr/lib/syslinux/syslinux-nomtools
/usr/lib/syslinux/syslinux.com
/usr/lib/syslinux/syslinux.exe
...

RPMforge package:
[root at netserv ~]# rpm -q syslinux
syslinux-3.51-1.el4.rf

[root at netserv ~]# rpm -ql syslinux
/sbin/extlinux
/usr/bin/gethostip
/usr/bin/lss16toppm
/usr/bin/ppmtolss16
/usr/bin/syslinux
/usr/lib64/syslinux
/usr/lib64/syslinux/chain.c32
/usr/lib64/syslinux/com32
...
/usr/lib64/syslinux/pxelinux.0
/usr/lib64/syslinux/sys2ansi.pl
/usr/lib64/syslinux/syslinux.com
/usr/lib64/syslinux/syslinux.exe
/usr/lib64/syslinux/vesamenu.c32

Is there any reason the files were moved to the lib64 dir on 64-bit systems?

Thanks,
Matt
