Re: Howto handle multilib conflict?

I received the following from upstream.  Anyone know the answer to the 
question (how do freetype-config, etc workaround this issue?)

As far as I know, there's none.  So, it's ok to remove
libotf-config.  But, why does libotf-config don't work with
multilib?  How do the other XXX-config programs
(e.g. freetype-config, fribidi-config, gtk-config, ...) work
with multilib?
