Just to clarify, currently [community] does not support the "any"
architecture, so you'll have to use arch=(i686 x86_64)

I have a 64-bit machine on which I have a 32-bit chroot where I
build the i686 versions, see for example:

In the i686 environment which I chroot to using linux32, CARCH
etc is set to i686, so communitypkg does not complain.
