I doubt a source package will have the dynamic libs correct and the
static libs wrong. I hope porters do test the stuff a bit.
Well, if it happens or for the few static only libs someone will
notice eventually, no big deal. Static libs in thw wrong place will
just not compiled other stuff, dynamic libs in the wrong place can
break the system.
Look at debian-amd64 ML for a discussion (thread just started) on
changing the way subarchs and package namings should/could be handled.
