All alioth debs. The autobuilder is ignoring the lib/lib64 completly.
I will a check for 64 bit files in /lib or /usr/lib tomorrow to catch
libs without 64bit patches I think. Should be easy to wrap dpkg-deb or
The autobuilder is currently just a shell script,
The real one is still missing too many debs.

Drop the source into /incoming/sid-i386/. You compile gcc with
"linux32 dpkg-buildpackage", right?

I export that in the autobuilder to avoid the problem during build. I
think updating the is not a high priority for now. Getting more of the
base libraries (and then the binaries too) to compiled 64 Bit flavours
is more important.
