The same way cross compilation identifies gcc and strip and whatnot.
Prefix it with the architecture. It just so happens autotools and
pkg-config already do this:

$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/mingw32-pkg-config
$ tail -n 5 /usr/bin/mingw32-pkg-config
# This is a useful command-line script through which one can use the
# macros from mingw32-macros.mingw32 cross-compilation. 

NAME="_`basename $0|tr -- - _`"
eval "`rpm --eval "%{$NAME}"`" "$@"

... Hrm, Richard went about this differently than I did. Seems rather

$ rpm --eval "%{_mingw32_pkg_config}"
