Remove check for x86 arch so it will allow building on any arch
ARM is a perfect client for a spice thin client and spice-gtk is currently supported on ARM. For some reason spice-xpi is not even though I can't see any reason why it shouldn't work.
The following patches (one to the spec and one to configure.ac) allows it to build. I'll be testing further to see if it works.

apply patches to spec
I think similar cpu check was removed from spice-gtk some time ago.

Yes, but I just discovered it depends on spice-client too.
Scratch build on ARM http://arm.koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=1123594
The above works with the patches to spice posted on the dependant bug on an ARMv7 device. Arch might be better set to
ExclusiveArch: i686 x86_64 armv6l armv7l armv7hl
for the moment.
Looks good, pushed to f18 git.
can this also be tested/built on Fedora17 ?
So that it can become available in the update repos before Fedora18 GA ?
There is a package available for f17, spice-xpi-2.8-2.fc17
