I guess you will generally have many more issues than this one when you
try to build 64-bit packages on a 32-bit buildd (e.g. compiling and
running 64-bit programs from configure scripts, running 'make check' or
'make test' targets, using binaries which have been built by the package
In the end it will be much easier to require a 64-bit machine to be
used to build 32/64-bit biarch packages instead of trying to circumvent
all these issues.
