Good old multilib ...

In this case it does look like a genuine problem.  libguestfs-
supermin-helper is really a libexec type of file.  However it has to
exist on $PATH so that libguestfs can be run without being installed.
Unfortunately the file contains @host_cpu@ so it's not identical on
both architectures, which breaks multilib.

Please open a bug.

Rich.
