glibc-localedb-all for i686 and x86_64

There is a problem with locale files on multiarch systems.

[jajcus at jajo ~]$ rpm -ql glibc-localedb-all-2.19-2.i686
[jajcus at jajo ~]$ rpm -ql glibc-localedb-all-2.19-2.x86_64

One is used by 32-bit binaries and the other by 64-bit binaries. The
problem is when installing one with poldek, then the other one is
un-installed. I had to use:

  just-install glibc-localedb-all-2.19-2.i686 --force

to have locale data available to both 32- and 64-bit binaries.

Why is one arch package replacing the other in this case? Shouldn't we
fix that?
