Bug#640499: libxvmc: please add multiarch support

Whatever happens here is not specific to libxvmc - see libpam-modules as
another example for an MA: same package shipping a conffile. As long as
the conffile shipped in the packages is the same across all
architectures, there should be nothing to worry about (besides dpkg
bugs, of course).
If you meant this as general question, not specific for libxvmc, then
asking at http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=684776 might
give you a better chance of someone knowing he answer ;-) (esp. if you
put Guillem in CC).
