Quick Info

The Build-Depends-Arch field is used to define a list of dependencies required when building architecture specific packages.

Note that is a wpkg specific extension which makes the build process a little faster when only building the package independent packages since in this case the dependencies found in the Build-Depends-Arch field do not get installed at all.

In general this field is not used because most people define their build dependencies in the Build-Depends field instead.
