DDebber will build packages for i386 and AMD64. The main difference is
that the AMD64 package will depended on the required ia32 libraries
which will not be pulled in with -force-architecture.

Just say'n

Ok, it still isn't that simple because if you don't have the required
packages then dmd will be left unconfigured since dpkg will not install
dependencies. # apt-get -f should fix this.
