So I made it as multiarch after his bug report and closed his bug.
Please note we can not always call -L/usr/lib or similar to be wrong for

If you file, please make such requests as wishlist to convert package to
(You may add reminder that -L and --libexecdir with /usr/lib
in debian/rules may needs to be changed for such conversion.)
