Package: libboost-filesystem1.49-dev
Version: 1.49.0-3.1
Severity: important

Dear Maintainer,
*** Please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation? testing out multiarch support for boost in wheezy
   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
     ineffective)? tried to use apt-get install of various dependencies
   * What was the outcome of this action? it ended up failing to install because it wanted to install 32bit gcc (overriding 64 bit gcc)
   * What outcome did you expect instead? I expected to be able to install 32 and 64 bit boost libraries and dev packages

*** End of the template - remove these lines ***
