Yes, but perhaps no one here knows an answer. After all, I don't think
we have decided that multilib-devel is assumed so we also use
gcc-multilib in makedepends. This could be a good way to start a
discussion about this very thing, though.

Assuming multilib-devel seems consistent with assuming base-devel to me.
