Yeah, I found the upstream issue after I reported this, but that doesn't
quite convey the problem seen here!

Probably; either abort based on DEB_HOST_ARCH_ENDIAN and DEB_HOST_ARCH_BITS
(though maybe the 32-bit big-endian builds are broken enough to not be useful
and should be disabled too), or I guess we can mark it Not-For-Us on the
wanna-build side.
