It's a little ambiguous. Maybe "any of these strings".

528 ↗(On Diff #1173)

"should be" is okay here, it is making a recommendation. But this sentence is vague. It's hard to tell what it is saying. The string should be different... from what? I think it is saying that the wording of the message depends on which variable is used. The example shows that BROKEN and IGNORE are worded differently.

"it will be checked" is ambiguous.

If this variable is set, <filename>/usr/lib32</filename> must be present for IA32 versions of libraries and the kernel must support IA32 compatibility.
