Bug#310047: libc6-amd64 upgrade conflicts with unrelated libc6-x86

Hi Konrad,

If you still think this is a bug, could you give us a little more
detail?  It only complains about copies installed in the wrong
location; yes, it will whine if you have an i386 system and amd64
libraries installed in /usr/local/lib64.  But that's probably a good
thing to whine about, since they ought to be in /lib64.

I've verified that it won't complain about properly installed 64-bit
libraries on i386.
