Package: docbook
Version: 4.5-4

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-depenedency for any architecture. See
http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/CrossDependencies and
http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/Implementation for explanation and

There are 690 packages which build-depend on this package. None of them
will be multiarch cross-buildable without this fix.
