The -dev package has no Multi-Arch field, which seems to be how the multiarch
spec on the Ubuntu wiki intends things to be done? As such, I'm still using
/usr/lib for the -dev part.

It'd be somewhat more complex to rearrange things for a multiarch -dev package,
but could be done; I assume the recommended way to do that would be to use
"./configure --libdir=/usr/lib/${DEB_HOST_GNU_TYPE}"?

libdbus is probably an interesting example if you want to do that because it
has one architecture-dependent header file, which it places in ${libdir}, and
keeps the rest of /usr/include architecture-independent.

For the actual change I made, please see pkg-utopia svn or this commit mail:

The -dev package currently contains:

There's no .la file.

I'd also be happy to multiarchify libgfshare (a small library using autotools
and debhelper 7) if that would make a useful example of how to do the simple
case; it's in collab-maint bzr, and you're welcome to commit there if that
would help. I'd also be happy to migrate it to collab-maint git (which
I've considered doing anyway) if that's easier for you to deal with.
