Small newbie question: 
 Idea: get aptitude running

 Attempt 1: install i386. 
   Problem: aptitude depends on libapt-pkg-libc6.3-5-3.3 which is
            provided by apt. apt 0.5.14-subarch1 installed so it
            provides 64bit libraries. We can't install i386 apt as well
            due to the fact that apt includes binaries besides necessary
library and binaries can't be installed cause they are already provided
by 64bit apt package. So Attepmt 1 didn't go through. Possible
solutions? Truncated apt i386 package with library only?

 Attempt 2: recompile to get amd64 version
   Problem: Build depends on libcurses.so which is present in
libncurses5-dev for i386 but not present in lib64ncurses5-dev. Does it
mean that I need to adjust configure script to get it compile anyway or
we need to take care about lib64ncurses5-dev to provide all required
