You can configure ColPack with the switch --libdir='${prefix}/lib64'.
Actually the autotools package should already define libdir in this
manner on 64-bit systems. (It does so on my openSUSE system, but I don't
know about Fedora).

If you are using Fedora, how did you get libtool 2.4
Debian-2.4-2ubuntu1? Is this the official Fedora RPM, or a locally
installed version of libtool/autotools? In any case it looks like your
autotools are misconfigured. You should also try deleting aclocal.m4 and
ltmain.sh and then calling
   autoreconf --force --install

If this does not help check installation of autotools/libtool.
