My 'hack' involved compiling part of it on a 32 bit machine, and part of 
it on a 64 bit machine.  I was unable to compile the 32 bit required 
parts on a 64 bit machine.

I think you could do 2 source packages and have the 2nd package targeted 
at amd64 pull in the 32bit parts and make them part of the 64 bit 
package much like ia32-libs.  But thats not how I did it.
