The main System is pure-amd64, i386 is installed in a chroot 
in /sys32. /etc/ld.so.conf lists both sets of lib directories in order to 
be able to actually execute the programs from /sys32.

When trying to install a new libc apt complains that there is an additional 
version in /sys32/lib/libc6.so. I have to manually remove the 32bit 
directories from /etc/ld.so.conf before I can proceed.

Sorry I can't provoke the error right now, since I already have the newest 
libc installed. (is there a flag to override this check?)
