This is multilib. Basically packages that have a -devel subpackage have
that devel subpackage and it's requirements (if available) shipped in
the 64bit tree. The theory is that this allows people to develop and
run 32bit applications if they need on 64bit machines. The 32bit
packages in the 64bit repo that don't show up in the report, don't have
broken deps. ;)
