After doing some testing I found that in fact there is a bug. dpkg-architecture for
i386 gives the Build arch and host differently:
which stops dpkg installing anything on the build machine.
This is probably my fault rather than Guillem's, but needs fixing
before it can go upstream.
I shall try and fix this on the way to fosdem, and if I can't, hope
Guillem is there to explain it all to me :-)
