Description Matěj Cepl 2010-06-21 08:56:32 UTC
With reference to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/Guidelines#Architecture_Build_Failures

There are two reasons why this package should have ExcludeArch: PPC for RHEL-5.

The really important one is that there is no RHEL-5/Desktop for PPC so there are many libraries (especially and including libpurple) which are not available for PPC.
The second is that I just cannot imagine somebody running spectrum on high-end IBM PowerPC servers, so there is not much motivation to even investigate possibility of building it on PPC.
