bmp still requires ExcludeArch?

Does bmp (the beep media player) still require the ExcludeArch, because
of it miscompiling on ppc? It seems to compile, starts up, and plays an
ogg file fairly well. (just some random test file
in /usr/share/apps/klettres/da/alpha/a-12.ogg) Haven't done much more QA
on it, besides the fact that "it works"

If we're excluding builds based on endianness issues, linphone and
kphone need to be excluded as well on PPC, imho

Attached patch will re-enable builds on ppc
