libvpx has provides=('') to make sure the library version doesn't change unnoticed fro packages built against libvpx. (this can be added to the depends of a package then)

This should also be done for lib32-libvpx.

Yes, this works for 32 bit packages and doesn't interfere with the 64 bit version.
See this for an example:

Please, apply proposed fix. For example, lib32-ffmpeg can't be built correctly, dependency will fail.
