Bug#274747: type-handling: avoid dpkg-dev dependency

Package: type-handling
Version: 0.2.23
Severity: normal

In order to avoid the dpkg-dev dependency you can replace the
dpkg-architecture -L invocation with:
perl -MDpkg::Arch -e 'print "$_\n" foreach Dpkg::Arch::get_valid_arches();'

And then you need only a libdpkg-perl dependency.

Dpkg::Arch has not yet a stable API but it's unlikely this function will be
renamed, and even if it does, it will be easy to fix...
