OK. In this case, scheduling them is probably better.

This is probably true for x32, yes, but I was concerned about
M-A libraries not being coinstallable. For example, the harfbuzz
library currently has one +b more than all others, making trouble
for my desktop system (x32+i386 M-A). In that case, it wasn’t even
because the rebuild was done twice, but, because another rebuild
before the current (shared) one was necessary.

How about, scheduling them all at once, but using the same version
number across arches when doing it (i.e. the largest)?

Okay, thanks a lot! Also, thanks for the response.
