Debian architecture strings, as described in Section 5.6.8 of the Dbian policy. Compliant with Debian policy version 3.9.2
check whether a source architecture string matches a host architecture. The source architecture string may contain architecture wildcards ("linux-any", "any-i386"), or be "any" or "all". The host architecure is one that may be obtained by running "dpkg-architecture -qDEB_HOST_ARCH").
fill the lookup table mapping debian architectures to debian triplets this function is called by src_matches_arch without supplying anything for the optional ttfile and ctfile arguments. If they are not None, then they can point to a file like /usr/share/dpkg/triplettable or /usr/share/dpkg/cputable respectively.
