openssl-devel.i386 missing from x86-64 distribution

Description of problem:
openssl-devel.i386 is missing from the x86-64 distribution. It makes it impossible to build 32-bit applications which require any of the openssl libraries on a 64-bit machine.
Installed from a 32-bit distribution it works fine, so it only needs to be added to the 64-bit distribution (so updating works.)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Try to build an openssl-using application, e.g. git, as a 32-bit application on an x86-64 system
*** Bug 181291 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks
This bug is definitely not fixed yet.
Is it really clear that we want this? It is trivially easy to create a chroot
with an easy automated tool like mock to build 32bit binaries for use elsewhere.
Even if this is desirable, openssl headers are not arch clean, so this would
cause conflicts if we did it now. Moving to FC6 for now.
They actually are arch clean.
OK, but we have no time left to do this in FC5. We have too many other last
minute changes to make of higher priority.
This requires some core changes to how multi-lib is figured out and evaulated.
Deferring until such time.
This is a problem for RHEL4 as well....
This has been fixed in FC6 Test1.
