Hi don't fully know this part of the code, but I doubt it will break
pure armhf systems. The problem will happen on systems with both armhf
and armel or with x32 and armhf. The system might not find non-native
libraries. One way to workaround that is to remove the ldconfig caches 
during the postinst, and recreate them by calling ldconfig.
