How much is there in lintian that requires running on the host
architecture now? It used to be that binutils-multiarch was required, but
after some experimentation, that no longer seems to be the case. I think
running lintian across the entire archive may just be a matter of changing
the harness scripts to just do it (and do it on a fast enough machine that
it will finish in a reasonable amount of time); I'm not sure that we need
to run lintian natively on each architecture.
