Bug Description

[Impact]
This allows various bits of archive and package building infrastructure on precise to recognise ppc64el as a valid arch, needed for Soyuz, but also some third-party archive infrastructure setups.

[Test Case]
Test that "dpkg-architecture -appc64el" outputs the same on precise-proposed as it does on saucy.

[Regression Potential]
Minimal regression potential. Should double-check that "dpkg-architecture -appc64el" and "dpkg-architecture -apowerpc" output as desired, with 32/64 bits and eb/el as appropriate.

Hello Adam, or anyone else affected,

Accepted dpkg into precise-proposed. The package will build now and be available at http://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/dpkg/1.16.1.2ubuntu7.2 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug, mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to verification-failed. In either case, details of your testing will help us make a better decision.

Further information regarding the verification process can be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/QATeam/PerformingSRUVerification . Thank you in advance!
