Thank you! This was very helpful.
With the information you gave me, I found that apt-config treats:
as a compiled-in default, which can be overriden in /etc/apt/apt.conf.
So, if I needed to, I could override it there, although that would
probably be a daft thing to do in most cases.
For anyone else who may be curious, you can check architecture with:
apt-config dump | fgrep Arch (from apt package)
dpkg-architecture (from dpkg-dev package)
Thanks again for the help!
