Re: no i386 build for xfce4

I just tried installing the backports version of lxde. Once again the meta-package lxde fails:

aptitude -t lenny-backports install lxde

The following packages are BROKEN:

The following actions will resolve these dependencies:

Keep the following packages at their current version:
lxde [Not Installed]

The lxde-core package seems fine, but I kind of wanted all the goodies that the meta-package brings with it. It looks like the easy way to fix this is to backport the package lxmusic from squeeze.

I find it quite puzzling that no build for i386 exists in backports for quite a few dependencies of the meta-package xfce4.

When I try: aptitude -t lenny-backports install xfce4

I get errors saying that dependencies: xfdesktop4, orage, thunar and others can't be satisfied.
Checking in the debian packages website I found out why...there is no build for these packages for i386!, only amd64 and ppc.

I hope this can be easily fixed
