Of course not, read Policy. What is saying is, "this package needs
l-k-h to build, _unless_ we're on hurd-i386, netbsd-i386, or
kfreebsd-i386; in that case, it's ok that l-k-h is not present".

No, it does not (rock). And, fortunately, it's going to die. If you're
curious what's going to replace it, check Guillem Jover's patch in
#291939 (last message in the bug).
When/if it gets implemented, you'll be able to:
Build-Depends: libasound2-dev [linux-any]
Build-Depends: firebird2-dev [any-i386]
