are you saying this is a general glibc challenge, or something
specific to OBS systems?

Well, on a CentOS system (or any Red Hat derived system), the problem is that
all 32-bit support is added by adding the .i386 package.  As the package
itself is a 32-bit arch package, there isn't a glibc(x86-32) dependency;
everything is already assumed to be x86-32.

SuSE's (better, IMO) practice of having a 64-bit arch package with 32-bit
contents necessitates the glibc(x86-32) provides

I think that the SUSE (and Debian?) approach is clearly superior to
the CentOS/RedHat approach, but I had a problem to solve and I tried
to solve it. Since I can't solve it this way, I'm going to punt.
Thanks for the help confirming my suspicions!
