Bug#343605: libgtk2.0-bin: apiver should contain the arch-os-gnu triplet

Package: libgtk2.0-bin
Version: 2.6.4-3
Severity: wishlist


while working on multiarch support I notice that gtk2.0-bin will
break. In update-gtk-immodules you set 'apiver=2.0' and create
/etc/gtk-$apiver/gtk.immodules. For multiarch systems there must be
multiple such files, one for each abi used.

This could mean 32bit and 64bit modules or i386 and ppc modules or
glibc and uclibc modules. To cover all cases you should add the full
arch-os-libc triplet to apiver (2.0-<arch>-linux-gnu usualy).

It is important to already add this feature even if the package itself
is not build for multiarch yet to allow automatic conversion of the
binaries into multiarch debs as I'm currently using.
