While it looks like placing 64-bit libraries into /usr/lib64 will work, yet some questions remain. Where should the 32-bit libraries be installed for popular Linux distributions? Are there are circumstances where installing 64-bit libraries into /usr/lib64 will not work? In summary, I was hoping there is a reliable way that works for all popular distributions.

comment Is it risky to give the option to make and install a new Linux kernel and driver on reboot?
Interesting and relevant post. If one looks at the vboxdrv scripts, it can be seen that they check if dkms is installed and if so they use it. We may have time to do something similar.

This answer pretty much answers my question and looks like Sun/Oracle may be doing the same thing for /etc/init.d/vboxdrv. Basically we should create /etc/init.d/usbdpfpdrv One very useful additional comment: need to write build log into /var/log/usbdpfpdrv-install.log
