really depends on how the package uses them. In general, putting them
into /usr/lib/$package/ should do it, but it really depends on how the
package uses them. are they used as plugins like in xine, vlc? or are
they convenience shared libraries, like e.g. in openoffice?

where do  upstream's installation scripts install them?
