It is a simple text file, which will be used automatically if a i586
build runs and it will generate some extra packages with the listed
binary files for the other architecture.

Marco is right though. The package name is not the same for the
normal i586 package and the 32bit one. Therefore the automatic
provides are different and the %name(x86-32) one is basically

The regular package would provide

%name(x86-32) = %version-%release

while the -32bit version basically has

%name-32bit(x86-32) = %version-%release

So what's missing is the original name with architecture. In the
concrete case of alsa-plugins-pulse-32bit it provides only
instead of

Marco: as workaround you may want to depend on a plugin library name
instead of the package name. E.g.

The 64bit version doesn't provide that string
