Package: buildcross
Version: 0.0.3
Severity: serious

Your package is only installable on amd64 due to the dependency on
libc6-dev-i386 (among others).  ISTM the package should be arch:any and
only depend on gcc-multilib, libc6-dev-i386, lib32gcc1 on architectures
where these packages are available.

BTW, is it correct to depend on libreadline5-dev rather than
libreadline6-dev or libreadline-dev?
