Building gcc-4.0 source package under i386

Could a developer subscribed to the list explain the following
anomaly to me? I had always assumed that amd64 was a separate
architecture. With the amd64 libs installed, the gcc-4.0 source
package fails to build on my machine.

alpha:~# uname -m
alpha:~# apt-get build-dep gcc-4.0
