Description of problem:
pango-devel.i386 can't be installed with pango-devel.x86_64 on x86_64 box.
This makes me wonder how bug 454291 ever got marked as fixed because pango-devel had a dependency on freetype-devel.
Well I guess actually it was closed as wontfix which seems to be the wrong resolution as seems it was actually fixed ups
This bug has actually shown up in 2.8 release. I've fixed it in rawhide and F27 for now.
freetype-2.8-6.fc27 has been pushed to the Fedora 27 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.

freetype-2.8-6.fc27 has been pushed to the Fedora 27 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
Apparently I came up with a much simplier multilib patch for myself which works for 2.8 and survives the 2.8 and 2.8.1 transition, a couple of months before this bug.
Note the important part is just libdir. The one used in 2.8-6 is way too complicated and therefore broke with 2.8.1 .
Since Koji does not offer a 2.8.1 srpm yet, FYI.
