It should be done using depends -- it is a dependency after all.
It's just that the tools (ie dpkg, and the package format) can't handle
it at present.
So for now, we've done nothing about it. I like the idea of fixing it,
even if it is a kludge. A fake bin86 on the other architectures might
not be the right idea though, because there's no reason why as86/ld86
etc couldn't run on non-x86 (AFAIK).
