If there is some i386-only package that depends on hal, and you've got
that package installed, then you're going to get two copies of HAL, one
for each arch.

For example, since openoffice.org isn't 64-bit yet, and since it links
to GTK, you're going to have both an x86_64 and an i386 GTK installed in
parallel.  Welcome to multilib :)
