You know, dpkg-gencontrol (since 1.10.11) supports arch specifiers for
all dependency fields.

So instead of using substvars for the arch-dependant deps, you can just
do like this:

Depends: ..., xlibosmesa3-dbg [alpha i386 ia64 powerpc], ...

Of course, you need to add a versioned build-dep on dpkg-dev, making
backports more work.
