well, we can easily re-add it. I did that at a point in time where it was not
the only i586 package needed for a 64bit system (think of OOo, firefox, ...)

we just can't make it "noarch" because then it would appear on all other
platforms
which is not really wanted. building it twice (for i586 and x86_64) does not
really hurt, but you'll have to add some tweaks to really make it build on
x86_64
since you'll have to link and compile 32bit assembler for that master boot
record ...
