Well, one of the main motivations for Multi-Arch was to get rid of the clunky ia32-libs package.

If nspluginweapper depends on ia32-libs, directly or indirectly, you won't be able to use it anyway in the future, since ia32-libs and the associated other ia32 packages will probably be removed with Debian Jessie (8.0).

Honestly, just use a different PDF plugin. Acrobat Reader on Linux is dead, more or less, anyway.
