Simplest, but the repercussions of ignoring an arch last for a while even
after the arch is no longer being ignored; it doesn't make much sense to do
this when there's a fix in sight.

And Goto-san has said that he plans to upload glibc 2.3.5 to unstable this
weekend, so I would say that the fix is in sight.
