No. I don't think there are any news here. I had hoped that my previous
mails would have made my position clear. Let me try to be more explicit:
I think that running native amd64 builds in linux32 is broken and that
any tool doing so (e.g. reprotest) is buggy.

Having debhelper pass CMAKE_SYSTEM_PROCESSOR is a nice idea, but doing
so will break a fair number of packages in subtle ways. Therefore I
recommend not doing that (other than for cross compilation).

This is basically repeating what I already said. If you concur, the
logical next step is reassigning to reprotest.
