[Rubygems-developers] Question about install ext files (.so) into arch specific directories

I'm trying to get a gem to install the platform specific files into
<gem>/lib/<arch> where arch is ::Config::CONFIG['arch']. I've figured
out how to get the specfile to add the correct directories to the load

  s.require_paths = ["lib", "lib/#{::Config::CONFIG['arch']}"]

However, I can't seem to make mkmf create a Makefile that will install
the files into the correct directory.

I've tried setting target_prefix in extconf.rb to no avail.

And ideas?
