Bug Description

Users on a 64 bit version of Quantal cannot install the Ecere SDK
Issues in the control files regarding Architecture: all packages and font package dependency prevent installation.
The problem has been solved in Debian, by properly following the Multi-Arch guidelines:
   - The dependency on fonts-freefont-ttf is now a 'Recommended' instead of 'Depends'
   - The Ecere architecture: all packages were marked as Multi-Arch: foreign
   - The Libraries were marked as Multi-Arch: same
   - Libraries are now always put in /usr/lib/$(DEB_HOST_MULTIARCH)

[Test Case]
Simply trying to install the sdk on an amd64 installation of Quantal will give you errors:

sudo apt-get install ecere-sdk

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 ecere-sdk:i386 : Depends: ecere-dev:i386 but it is not going to be installed
                  Depends: ecere-smples:i386 but it is not installable
                  Depends: ecere-extras:i386 but it is not installable

[Regression Potential]
This package should not cause any regression issue, as its impact is limited to a previously uninstallable package.

So where is this giant SRU?
Either point me to the packaging branch and/or .dsc that I can fetch using dget.
