No, it only hidden the problem behind getconf binary being handled
_somehow_. I once even wondered how this is done, apparently rpm is
trying to be way too smart.

Multi-arch means ability to install multiple libraries, not binaries -
there is no /usr/bin64 for getconf using /usr/lib64/getconf files.

Anyway, our multi-arch usually requires the same versions of packages
due to various man pages or locales shipped with the libraries. Just
like in case of glibc.
