Bug#642341: libeigen2-dev should be arch-independent
As such, you are right. But making it arch:any gives the advantage that we get
the possibility to get the test suite run on all architectures, which is the
reason why we changed it from arch:all to arch:any in the first place.
The only 'expense' is a slightly extra amount of space used on the build
I'm tending to mark this bug wontfix for this reason.
