This is great!  Thanks for doing this.  One strange thing I've noticed is that 
sometimes a package will build fine on x86_64 but will fail on x86 with an error 
like this:

distutils.errors.CompileError: command 'gcc' terminated by signal 11
make[4]: *** [/usr/share/gobject-introspection-1.0/Makefile.introspection:160: 
HarfBuzz-0.0.gir] Error 1

Every time I've seen this, the build works fine on my local x86 install, so it's 
not a big deal.  But I'm curious what might cause this.
