A "Build-Depends: lesstif2-dev | lesstif-dev" can only be fullfiled by

- lesstif-dev is already installed in the chroot [dirty chroot]
- lesstif2-dev gets installed by sbuild

in that order.

It is far more likely the i386 version was uploaded by the maintainer
and he still had lestiff-dev installed on his/her system (and I'm too
lazy to check).

A binNMU will fix this normaly.
