Multilib support is coming to Arch, see:

The [multilib] repository can be found in multilib/os/x86_64 on your favorite mirror. It contains 32 bit libraries that can be used to run 32 bit applications like the flash plugin and skype in 64 bit installation.


Include = /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

to your Template:Filename to use this repository.
