It is in the devscripts package (that is mentioned on the list of packages
in one of the first chapters).

If I understood you correctly, you want to upload one source, and two
binaries (i386 + m68k). If you don't want to edit the changes file
by hand, you can just use these options for dpkg-buildpackage on i386:
-b binary-only, do not build source
-sd uploaded src is diff and .dsc only
Then you will have source+m68k in one changes file, and i386 in the other,
but that just means that you need to run dupload twice.
