[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#705179: fonts-unfonts-core should be marked multi-arch: foreign

Package: fonts-unfonts-core
Version: 1.0.2-080608-9

If a user wants to install an i386 package depending on 
fonts-unfonts-core onto an amd64 system, it may erroneously come up as 
uninstallable as apt has no multiarch information on fonts-liberation.

Please mark fonts-unfonts-core as multi-arch: foreign in debian/control 
to fix this.

is there for ubuntu package, but the change is trivial so feel free to 
just do it).

Thank you!
