Add support for multiarch.
Open compat level 9, which incompatibly changes dh_auto_configure behavior to set --libdir and --libexecdir to the multiarch directory path. This requires dpkg-dev 1.16.0 (not yet released) for the multiarch directory variable, so bump the dependency to this version. Also set a new substvar, misc:Pre-Depends, to multiarch-support, a virtual package provided by versions of eglibc that support the multiarch library paths at runtime; this needs to be a pre-dependency to ensure unpacked but not-yet-configured libraries can still be found during upgrades, so library packages converting to multiarch (i.e., switching to compat 9) will need to add this substitution by hand to debian/control.
