jackd1's libjack0 is part of ia32-libs.

The whole situation isn't really satisfying, given that we want users to
switch between jackd1 and jackd2 transparently.

In other words, we either need diversions and/or remove libjack0 from

Unlike jackd2, jackd1 doesn't have a builtin 32bit target on amd64, so
we'd need to create our own magic to build the corresponding library.

My gut feeling is that we shouldn't do this and wait for a sane
multiarch solution. AFAIK, it's currently being worked on.

Any input on this issue is highly appreciated. ;)
