One way to do this is setup an i386 chroot (using debootstrap +
schroot) and use that to build 32-bit wine. I used this setup to test
the gstreamer patch and it works without a glitch. See [1] for more

Multiarch support already kind of works in current Ubuntu (11.04),
though not that excellent and it's not yet enabled by default. Haven't
tried installing glib-dev using that, but I'm guessing that even if it
did work pkgconfig most likely won't know about it, so we would have
the wrong -I flags output from the configure script (because there is
no way for us to specifically ask pkgconfig for a certain

Anyway, what do you use gstreamer for or what applications use it? I'm
