  just for fun, i decided to install the chromium browser on my f11
x86_64 system.  first, the prebuilt binaries are 32-bit only, so doing
a yum install would have dragged down dozens of megabytes of i586
packages with it.

  however, grabbing the src package and trying to build it also didn't
help, since the only supported arches in the spec file are ix86 and
arm.  unless i'm reading it incorrectly.  does an x86_64 build of
their browser exist for f11?
