Description of problem:
By mistake, I said:
rpmbuild --rebuild --target x86_86 milter-greylist-1.7.4-1.src.rpm
and sure enough, got a package under RPMS/x86_86.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpmbuild --rebuild --target x86_86 milter-greylist-1.7.4-1.src.rpm
Actual Results: Got a x86_86 package
Expected Results: Error message: "No such architecture." Or at least
"Can't build for that architecture"
you are assuming that there are deep semantic interpretations
to rpm's interpretation of arch. this is demonstrably not true,
as rpm already has 6 too many ppc* architectures than objectively
so if you want to build for x86_86 (or amd64 or pentium5 or any
other arch string), have at!
