  build-essential shouldn't be Multi-Arch: foreign

Status in “build-essential” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in “build-essential” source package in Precise:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  During precise development, build-essential was incorrectly marked
  Multi-Arch: foreign.  This directly contradicts the multi-arch cross-
  building spec, and broke when dpkg started properly implementing that
  spec in quantal.

  This bug has already been fixed in quantal, but the fix should be
  backported to precise for correctness (in case someone uses the
  quantal dpkg with the precise build-essential, or some other
  interesting combination).
