As far as I know most of the lib32foo packages are going to be faded
out. Now that multiarch works that well, that ia32-libs already uses it
there is little point in adding new packages that way. If you really
need this (for example for an older release), have a look at how other
packages are doing this. ncurses should be a good example as it still
ships lib32 packages. The general idea is to build the package twice
with different CC and CFLAGS. This probably requires using a builddir
(or copying the source tree before build).
