I was out of my mind.

dpkg-source generates this field based on the Architecture: fields of the
binary packages.  If all of the packages list Architecture: i386 powerpc,
that will be the field in the .dsc.  If you have any arch: all packages,
though, I believe it ends up being arch: any.  I assume that the build
daemons handle that situation correctly, though.
