No, the whole point of mock is to create clean chroots each time you
want to build. The x86_64 platforms ability to run i386 code is a side
effect that allows you to do i386 builds on x86_64, and likewise ppc
builds on ppc64. But it doesn't magically let you do x86_64 builds on
i386 or ppc builds on i386.
The yum error is irrelevant and uninteresting here if you're trying to
do something outside the realm of possibility.
