Re: Using multiarch on wheezy

Not all packages are yet multi-archified, that is, declare that they
can be used on a multi-arch system (and how). In particular, since
libgif4 does not declare Multi-Arch:same, it cannot be installed at
the same time as another architecture of itself: libgif4:amd64 and
libgif4:i386 ‘conflict’.

Since it also not declares Multi-Arch:foreign, the libgif4:amd64
package cannot be used to satisfy the dependency of
openjdk-7-jre:i386 (and vice versa, libgif4:i386 cannot be used to
satisfy the dependency of emacs23:amd64).

At the current moment, your best bet is probably to use an i386
chroot or wait until libgif4 gets multiarchified. There is already a
bug report about this (http://bugs.debian.org/647497).
