Architecture: any - build a new package for each architecture.

Architecture: all - build the same package for all archs - _all.deb

If you build Arch: any, you get a .deb for your build architecture. If
uploaded, it will be built again for each port.

If your package does not contain architecture-specific data, it should
be Architecture: all - most font packages would be 'all'.
