Bug#826709: Doesn't mention --foreign in help output

CCing the maintainer of arch-test who will probably have some input.

It is a bad idea to hard-code this and hard-code it for only two
arches, using arch-test and falling back to a more comprehensive list
would be much better, as I suggested in my initial bug report:


> +                       error 1 WHATARCH "Tried to run on different architecture in chroot environment.\n   Use --foreign or --second-stage option, instead"

I prefer the message I wrote in my initial bug report:

  This machine cannot run binaries for architecture armhf
  There are two options to work around this:

  Use qemu-debootstrap instead of debootstrap

  Use debootstrap --foreign here and
  use debootstrap --second-stage on armhf
