Package: libdatrie1-bin
Version: 0.2.10-2
Tags: patch
Usertags: rebootstrap
Control: affects -1 + src:libthai src:swath

The packages listed above fail to cross build from source, because
executing trietool-2.0 fails. When satisfying their Build-Depends,
libdatrie1-bin is installed for the host architecture and thus no binary
from it can be executed. A solution to problem is marking libdatrie1-bin
Multi-Arch: foreign.

I believe that marking it Multi-Arch: foreign is correct, because its
inupts and outputs are processed in an architecture-agnostic way. For
instance, it specifically handles endianess when writing integers. I
also tried to run trietool on different architectures to see whether its
output would differ and my tests agree with the source code inspection.
Thus I think it really should be marked Multi-Arch: foreign.

Please consider applying the attached patch.

 Description: Programs for double-array trie library
  Trie is a kind of digital search tree, an efficient indexing method with
  O(1) time complexity for searching. Comparably as efficient as hashing,
