/usr/lib/i486-linux-gnu, the full and correct tripplet. Debian has
switched from i386 to i486 some time ago.

The only argument against using it already is that then later libfoo
on i386 needs Replaces: lib32foo for multiarch.

Well, and that gcc still doesn't look there for libraries when linking.
