Bug#683026: [debian-kernel-handbook] deb-pkg builds amd64 image package on i386

Package: debian-kernel-handbook
Version: 1.0.14
Severity: important

I followed the procedure for "Building a custom kernel from Debian kernel source" on an i386 wheezy install. The resulting package is targetted at the amd64 Debian architecture and cannot be installed on my system (which is physically x86-64):

# LANG=C dpkg -i ../linux-image-3.4.4_3.4.4-1_amd64.deb
dpkg: error processing ../linux-image-3.4.4_3.4.4-1_amd64.deb (--install):
 package architecture (amd64) does not match system (i386)
Errors were encountered while processing:

I used the experimental linux. Most likely a package from linux is the culprit, and not the handbook, but as I'm not sure which component is at fault, I'm assigning to the handbook understanding someone more knowledgeable will probably have to reassign. I configured the image using make oldconfig, using the config from the stock image I'm currently running, 3.2.0-3-amd64.

I'm not sure what conditions create this, but I suspect this wouldn't happen on a 32 bits machine. If someone can identify the conditions, feel free to adjust the severity.
