Are you taking about gcc-libs-multilib ? As mentioned in another thread
I also support replacing gcc-libs-multilib by a lib32-gcc-libs packages
containing only 32-bit versions.

Should we also make an announcement on the aur-general mailing-list ?
Something like:
"With the creation of the [multilib] repository, all 32-bit libraries are now
installed in /usr/lib32 and compiled from source using the gcc-multilib
package instead of being copied from i686 packages. All AUR users
maintaining lib32-* and bin32-* packages are encouraged to adapt their
packages to the new layout."
