host architecture by prokit supplying an appropriate `-a` option, allowing
maintainers to continue listing unqualified package names in `Build-Depends`
instead of having to add `-${Host-Arch}` to every `Section: libdev` package in

+architecture-qualified names (due to the coinstallability issue described
