Bug Description

As part of making debian 'bootstrappable' we are making sure that at least the core system is cross-buildable.

For build-dependencies to work properly under multiarch this package needs to be marked

Multi-Arch: foreign

so that it can satisfy a build-dependency for any architecture. See http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/CrossDependencies and http://wiki.debian.org/Multiarch/Implementation for explanation and background.

There are 354 packages which build-depend on this package (94 in main). None of them will be multiarch cross-buildable without this fix
