There is already an alpha version (linus made it, legally), I just haven't 
packaged it up yet. It is somewhat out of date, too.

But my main point is that it doesn't matter if they need one of the quake
packages to work, the quake-lib packages are architecture independant, and
should be marked as such. 

Just becuase an architecture independant package depends on a arch-dependant
package that is only available for one arch, is not a reason to make that
package arch dependant.
