On and ~amd64 multilib system pango forgets to create files for 32 bit programs like acrobat reader. Pango should create a pango.modules file for 32 bit programs in /etc/pango/i686-pc-linux-gnu as well as in /etc/pango/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu. Of course the path to the library should be changed accordingly.
If this file doesn't exist 32 bit programs try to load 64 bit libraries which of course doesn't work.
Steps to Reproduce:
/etc/pango/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/pango.modules file gets created
/etc/pango/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/pango.modules and /etc/pango/i686-pc-linux-gnu/pango.modules file get created.
pango doesn't build the library for 32 bits apps anyway, what you want is real multilib support which does not exist yet.
