It really seems to me that mock ought to be taught to do this.  There's no
good reason that "you need setarch foo if `uname -m` !~ bar" shouldn't be
part of that very config file that -r selects.

I won't even tell.  I believe any package so affected by now has a kludge
to do %ifarch blah\nsetarch i386 make dump\n%elsemake dump\n%endif or whatever.
