I'm afraid so. Should be fixed shortly.

You can't build 32bit packages for amd64 in a 32bit chroot. That results
in the wrong arch and wrong dependencies.

The "properly" part is that now the *.so symlinks are taken from the
packages. Before there was a hardcoded list of links to create and every
time a library version changed the respective link would break.
