If there is that large of a discrepency (like j2re, from what I
understand), it will be a whole different package: j2re-amd64.

If there are just patches and things like that it will look something like
source=('sources' 'that' 'are' 'common')
[ "$CARCH" = "amd64" ] && source=(${source[@]} 'other' 'source')


If you understand, things are just as they are.  If you do not understand,
things are just as they are.
