[aur-general] A bit strange - unusual packages

CCed to the maintainer of these packages.

lib32- prefix is used for the 32bit packages that are meant to be used
with 64bit Arch, ie. with arch=('x86_64'). However, all your
lib32-distrho-* packages are arch=('i686'). You should provide only
one package that is arch=('x86_64' 'i686') for this.

You can use conditions in a PKGBUILD, if you need to use different
sources for i686 and x86_64.

I will delete the lib32-distrho-* packages in a few days.
