[Pkg-libvirt-maintainers] Bug#763623: virt-manager: depends on arch-specific package(s)

Package: virt-manager
Version: 1:1.0.1-2
Severity: important
Justification: makes package unusable on most architectures but I didn’t feel like picking a fight about if it’s RC or not, right now

Depends: […], gir1.2-spice-client-gtk-3.0, […]

However, gir1.2-spice-client-gtk-3.0 only builds on i386 and amd64
and is not even Multi-Arch: foreign, so I cannot use this package
on x32. To add insult to injury, the currently installed version
also does not work:
