http://lists.debian.org/debian-bsd/2010/08/msg00068.html seems to be the
only answer to that question, Aurelien Jarno said:

I also have some serious doubts that the FTP masters would allow
ia32-libs in for kfreebsd-amd64.  Do you think that lib32ncurses would
be useful anyway?

Personally, I would like to get rid of the lib{32,64}ncurses* packages
on all architectures as soon as possible, but I have the feeling that
this won't happen in wheezy.
