Multiarch, which will allow you to install i386 debs on amd64.

| I'd also like advice wrt best short term solution...  I'd like to run

| having the ia32-libs-gtk* build the libraries itself with patches to
| have the libtool --libdir set appropriately.  Does that sound right?
| Will a patch to that effect be accepted?

To be honest, I'm not very interested in hacking on ia32-libs-gtk and
make it work better.  It's a hack and I would far rather spend time on
