Well, first of all it means that the package includes a shared object
library with the SONAME libGLU.so.1 and stores this library in dynamic
linker's search path. (If it stores it elsewhere, that's a package bug
IMHO).  Due to multilib it has become more complicated, apparently, as
the SONAME is identical on every architecture, and only RPM seems to
mark the 64-bit version in a package.

An i386 package. :)
