[pkg-wine-party] Wine / ARM architectures

Hi all,

two questions about wine/ARM (I'm quite unfamiliar with architecture
stuff in general, and ARM in particular):

We recently added armel (https://bugs.debian.org/803480), but the
packages fail to build there:

checking whether gcc supports Thumb... no
configure: error: You need a target with Thumb support to build Wine for
debian/rules:80: recipe for target 'override_dh_auto_configure' failed

However, looking at https://wiki.debian.org/ArmEabiPort, I understand
that armel has Thumb support.
Is Debian/armel missing some relevant support, do we need to fix
debian/rules, or is it something else? In the former case I guess we
should just drop armel again.

Matching 64- and 32-but architectures:

For an arm64 system, I assume wine32 should be installed from armhf (and
optionally from armel in case we fix that)!?
But installing wine32:i386 (or :powerpc) would not work, or should at
least not be suggested!?

Thanks in advance
