Right... but when you're parallel-installing i386 libraries on an amd64
system, you usually install *only the libraries*, not the rest of the
files the package would install, so there's no problem... is there?

IIUC, actually building complex assemblies of i386 software on an amd64
host would generally require a chroot?
