Thanks for reply Richard. I checked this and same issue is with
"vanilla" Python 3.3, so I suppose upstream won't add those paths -
there is a patch for multiarch support in Debian's source package for
Python3.2, looks like issue was fixed by Debian maintainers.

Too bad, because this means that Stackless isn't available to GNU/Linux
users without some kind of hacking involved (most distributions are
ignoring its existence so Stackless in their repos).

Did you considered putting self-made packages in download section of
Stackless site?
