As Grant said there is NO 64bit userland on parisc. 64bit binaries are
pointless (besides you're going to have hard time building any,
provided there is no 64bit glibc :-P).

You should familiarize yourself with how Debian packages are built and
maitained. All packages in the "main" section of the archive are built
on all archs (unless specified otherwise in the control file). There's
no need for a "per-arch" uploader.
