Wondering why, I asked what they were supposed to catch:
20:51:10 [ KiBi] Atomo64: What are linda/lintian supposed to catch?

20:51:57 [ Atomo64] KiBi: !arch: all packages not containing any arch-dependent file

You might have missed the point, trying again: your list contains plenty
of “Architecture: any” packages that are *rightfully* “any” because they
*do* contain architecture-dependant stuff (see e.g. icecc as already
pointed out).

Maybe there's rather a bug in your process. Instead of speaking of
“plenty of greps”, you might want to expose the code / algorithm you
