I think the only suggestion that came up before was, "mirror from
someplace that has already run yum-arch".  Of course, this doesn't let
you add in your own packages.  Would it be an option for you to mount
the repository via nfs on a RH box and run yum-arch from there?  I
haven't seen anyone successfully running yum-arch on debian (but they
may be out there somewhere!).
