At the moment the community scripts don't add 64bit-only packages to
the AUR. These lib32 packages are only meant for 64bit so they do
exist in community but the AUR won't show them. The package you've
made on the AUR should be deleted.

This is a bug but it's already known and isn't really harmful or
anything, the AUR just doesn't have a proper concept of arches yet.
