Bug Description

Binary package hint: libdpkg-perl

The multiarch-cross spec (
allows for build-dependencies to be marked with either :any or :native
to indicate exceptions to the default rules for installing

The attached patch adds this parsing to Dpkg:Deps and some tests to ensure that it is working OK.
