Well, what happens is that in some archs (specifically PowerPC in
case) it's very common to have a biarch environment (i.e., 64-bit kernel
and mixed 32/64-bit userspace), so it's not a strange thing to have both
versions of some software installed in the system.
Right. If there are 32/64 packages available, and they don't properly
install/run, then that's generally considered a bug (that should be fixed).
