Re: Specifying ia32-libs in control when on a 64 bit Debian/Ubuntu?

Unfortunately this is a package of a package that does not use deb done by someone else so I have to do the thinking for it. If ia32-libs is not present on a 64 bit system the install simply fails with an unrelated error message. I would rather not have two separate packages for i386 and amd64 if I can do the dependencies with logic only. -- IV

Shouldn't it be put automatically on amd64 arch by ${shlibs:Depends}?
