Thanks to Kristian for explaining what dialog.so is for and what could
be done to move it's location. I assume the solution eventually must
be some kind of re-location of dialog.so even though I don't know yet
where and how to do it. Thus I assume that "Multi-Arch: same" is and
will be correct for libmariadbclient18 just like it is in
libmysqlclient18. With this assumption, feel free Helmut to suggest
what to correct setup regarding the current 4 multi-arch hinter issues
should be.
