      Description

      The lib/$ARCH directory is present only in Linux and Solaris images.
      It contains native-code shared objects (.so files) for the VM and the
      libraries. It's a vestigial remnant of images that could support
      multiple CPU architectures, which is no longer a requirement; on Mac
      OS and Windows such files have always been placed directly in the
      `lib` directory.

      Let's simplify things: Move all the content of lib/$ARCH up one
      level in Linux and Solaris images, and then remove lib/$ARCH.
