Package: live-helper
Version: 1.0~a43-1
Severity: normal

The "rescue" list includes the package pstack which is only available
on i386. When building an image for amd64, this leads to the following error:

E: Couldn't find package pstack

Suggest that packages that don't exist on the current arch should be excluded automatically.
