Hi Andreas,

since I had some other reason to upload beast-mcmc I was considering to
close this bug as well.

But what exactly is the advantage to declare the package amd64.  The
only visible change I can see that if I do so I get an additional
message from lintian saying

   I: beast-mcmc: arch-dep-package-has-big-usr-share 8767kB 99%

So could you please be more verbose why I should switch from all to

Kind regards
