Bug#425905: nscd: should it depend on libc6-amd64 ?

Package: nscd
Version: 2.5-8
Severity: normal


	I have K7 CPU. Lots of other my hosts have i686.
	Why upgrade to nscd 2.5-8 should bring libc6-amd64 with itself ?
	Are there really any benefits from this, even on x86_64 CPUs ?
	What is so performance-critical in nscd that wins from
	64bit-optimized code ?

	Thank you in advance for your reactions.
	Hope to see this dependency removed or downgraded to
	suggests/recommends soon.
