[Pkg-fglrx-devel] Bug#574973: fglrx-glx uninstallable on i386: depends on amd64-only package fglrx-glx-ia32

Package: fglrx-glx
Version: 1:10-3~prerelease-1
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

The dependencies of fglrx-glx are currently use ${shlibs:Depends} in the
control file and the substvars after building in a clean i386 sid chroot have:

shlibs:Depends=fglrx-glx-ia32, libc6 (>= 2.1.3), libc6 (>= 2.3.6-6~), libgcc1 (>= 1:4.1.1), libxext6 (>= 0)

which results in the i386 package having a dependency on an amd64-only package.
This is, of course, unsatisfiable and the package is then uninstallable.

The packages recently uploaded to sid show this problem too.

have fun!
