Oh! That's good, I didn't realize they were getting re-built.

I think the better solution is to start sharing -any packages between
architectures.  That requires som dbscripts changes, but those are
coming soon anyway.

In the mean time:

The no-code workaround would be to configure pacman.conf:CacheDir to
to something else before working with the ARM chroot, and reset it

The writing-code workaround would be to tack the `-c CACHEDIR` flag
into the arch_nspawn_flags array in librechroot.

I think I'll do the writing-code workaround, then push a new version.

Happy hacking,
