ifnarch does not work with a set of archs (like ifarch does). Don't
read it like "if arch NOT in [ppc,ppc64]", but like "if arch NOT equal
to ppc" (a single value only!). So, in your spec, when the targetarch
is ppc, your %ifnarch holds true because ppc!=ppc64, and when the
targetarch is ppc64, it holds true because ppc64!=ppc.
