Currently we install the versioned libhandle into /lib by default,

uses libhandle this seems rather awkward to me.  From Mike's comments
in the past I think Gentoo already installs it into /usr anyway.

Is there anything speaking against moving all libraries to /usr and
switching Debian/Fedora to that aswell?

Seems fine to me;

/sbin/fsck.xfs:
        not a dynamic executable
/sbin/mkfs.xfs:
        libuuid.so.1 => /lib64/libuuid.so.1 (0x0000003327e00000)
        librt.so.1 => /lib64/librt.so.1 (0x0000003df3e00000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib64/libpthread.so.0 (0x0000003df2e00000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x0000003df2200000)
        /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x0000003df1e00000)
/sbin/xfs_repair:
        libuuid.so.1 => /lib64/libuuid.so.1 (0x0000003327e00000)
        librt.so.1 => /lib64/librt.so.1 (0x0000003df3e00000)
        libpthread.so.0 => /lib64/libpthread.so.0 (0x0000003df2e00000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib64/libc.so.6 (0x0000003df2200000)
        /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 (0x0000003df1e00000)


As you say, nothing in /sbin needs it AFAICT.
