Bug Description

We are working on getting multiarch metadata correct throught the
archive. This package needs to be marked 'Multi-Arch: foreign' for
dependencies and build-depencies to work correctly in all cases.

Any package 'X' build-depending on less cannot be cross-built
because apt-get build-dep -a<arch> cannot satisfy X's
build-dependencies until

Multi-Arch: foreign

is added to less's control file, to indicate that less from
any available arch will satisfy the dependency.

59 packages in Ubuntu cannot be cross-built until this patch is applied.
