[Pkg-samba-maint] Strange libacl build dependency

Does anyone know what exactly this is supposed to accomplish:

Build-Depends: libacl1-dev (>= 2.2.11-1) [i386 ia64 alpha amd64 arm hppa 
m32r m68k mips mipsel powerpc ppc64 s390 s390x sh3 sh3eb sh4 sh4
eb sparc]

Would it not be better to write:

Build-Depends: libacl1-dev (>= 2.2.11-1) [!hurd-i386 !kfreebsd-i386]

Perhaps the inclusion list was once upon a time much shorter than the 
exclusion list?
