Yes, but wasn't your aim to make libfoo-arch1-dev and libfoo-arch2-dev
installable in parallel?

I don't see why it would make sense to re-run configure on a user's
system when the information is already present at compile/configure
time. And I don't see the stupidity in

	/* Want to be portable to systems w/o int64_t */
	typedef long foo_int64;

	Libs: -L${libdir} -lpthread

You're trying to shoehorn data into binary-all that is inherently
architecture dependent.
