You seem to be talking about two different things.

The interpreter goes into /lib.  Otherwise you won't be able to run any 
of the binaries in a "normal" configuration, and that's bad.

The libraries used for linking goes into /usr/lib/klibc/lib; also a copy 
of the interpreter goes there for the convenience of programs that build
