I still don't understand why you can't just build a lib32 package that
doesn't conflict with the usual jack/jack2 package. Also, there is no
provides on jack2, why?

But the most important thing: There is no makedepend on gcc-multilib or
any other of the multilib build tools. How could this build a 32 bit binary?
