The problem was not in kfreebsd but in hurd-i386.

The problem still remains even if Daniel Baumann has adopted and
uploaded a new version of the fuse package. Please check  again to see
that the status of hurd-i386 architecture has a dependency installability.
So even with this change archivemount will remain in the current state
and useless for all linux users. I prefer the package to be sponsored
and used for now only from linux and kfreebsd users and when everything is
ready we will upload the package again including the missing architecture.
I included kfreebsd-any in the Architecture Field and re-uploaded the package.
Please bare in mind that the package remains in the current state for more
than 300 days waiting fuse-utils for the hurd-i386 arch.

Do we need that for the moment?
