3.5. Make makedev Arch: any, and modify it so that under hurd-i386 the
package does nothing (i.e. it is really a dummy package). It has an
Installed-Size: of 72Kb. Even if we multiply this by the number of
architectures, I think we can live with that (we already live with an
"Arch: any" base-files, which is not a large package either).
