Bug Description

I have a tool that requires `gcc-multilib` to be installed on jammy.

While I have `gcc-11-multilib` installed, an attempt to install `gcc-multilib` leads to suggestion some essential for me cross compilation gcc-11 packages are going to be removed, what doesn't make much sense.

This leaves me in some kind of a limbo, where I have everything I need to work in place (technically) but behaviour of not updated meta package leads to problems.

Could you, please, fix that?

I think problem lies elsewhere and till date haven't been solved even if `gcc-11-multilib` just works aside cross compilers installed.

Looks like duplicate of: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gcc-defaults/+bug/1300211

Xilinx (Canonical's partner) requires `gcc-multilib` installed for their PetaLinux tools, while at the same time I need to cross-compile Debian packages for the ARM64 target on Xilinx chip. This is little bit awkward situation.
