In the Eclipse SDK package set, we recently went through the
multilib-ification process.  We had to add a few file-level dependencies
to get this to work.  This was due to the inability to specify %{arch}
in a Requires.  How would this have been better accomplished?

Ben can probably explain this better than I can.
