  texinfo needs multiarch metadata to ensure dependency satisfaction

Status in “texinfo” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in “texinfo” package in Debian:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  As part of making debian 'bootstrappable' we are making sure that at
  least the core system is cross-buildable.

  For build-dependencies to work properly under multiarch this package
  needs to be marked

  Multi-Arch: foreign

  so that it can satisfy a build-dependency for any architecture. See
  http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/CrossDependencies and
  http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/Implementation for explanation and

  There are 354 packages which build-depend on this package (94 in
  main). None of them will be multiarch cross-buildable without this fix
