You have to set up different build settings for each architecture if you
want something like that. The documentation on it isn't great, but I believe
that this is the relevant section:

You'd probably end up with something like "libs-x86_64" and "libs-x86" with
them pointing to the different spots, but I don't know exactly what you'll
need. In general, the documentation hints at what's needed in situations
like this but doesn't manage to make it clear exactly how to go about it, so
whenever I need to do much interesting with dub, I tend to have to muck
around with the dub.json file until I manage to hit upon the right
combination of settings that do what I need. Usually, it's possible to do
what you need to do with dub, but it's a pain to figure it out.

You can also ask questions in the dub-specific forum:
