Use the -m switch to xapt when there are packages which are Multi-Arch
compliant in the dependency chain.

If these are omissions in the wiki page, feel free to update the wiki

There is a lot more going on here than you may expect and building
cross-toolchains on sid is probably best left to Thibault for genuine
Multi-Arch support.

If you just want a cross-compiler for powerpc, forget sid. Use
Squeeze, build for squeeze and xapt doesn't need to look at Multi-Arch.
