The Arch Linux package will not receive i686-specific fixes, so
archlinux32 will need to patch this themselves.

Right, but the maintainer is still active on Github if not on this
specific project, so maybe he forgot, and you reminding him again will help.

Whipper *uses* accuraterip-checksum, there is no bug in whipper. It's an
arch any package because it doesn't contain executable ELF files, so it
runs on any CPU.

Try again to get upstream to fix it, then if that fails get your
downstream distro (archlinux32, not archlinux) to fix it.
