brltty is not library, so it shouldn't be multilib. I think the 32 bit version was wrongly put to the repo because there was badly defined dependencies in the brltty spec. This is now fixed. The conflict itself is not easy to solve. Even if we solve it, it will result in installation of the 32 bit drivers which without the 32 bit brltty binary (which will be not installed due to the coloring) are probably useless. I think if the brltty.i686 was introduced to the repo, we shouldn't drop it (it can be still used if the 64 bit version is not installed). That's why I recommend just documenting this problem as a known issue.
Possible fix (which I do not recommend):
- drop the drivers-directory option and its description from the /etc/brltty.conf, rely on the built-in defaults
- add wrapper for the brltty-config with some bash magic for detection of the 32/64 bit
- drop the 32/64 bit parts from the manual page (brltty.1.gz)
