make virt-manager archful to avoid spice dep on non-x86

Description of problem:
Spoke with Cole about this, but the request is to make virt-manager archful so archs that don't have full spice support can still have virt-manager.
The ExclusiveArch statement from the spice-gtk RPM was removed quite a while ago, so it should be available on all architectures. As such I don't see that spice is a reason to make virt-manager arch-ful.
spice.spec still has:
ExclusiveArch: i686 x86_64 armv6l armv7l armv7hl
But indeed I see spice-gtk built successfully in ppc-koji, so virt-manager should at least install correctly. Though the virt-manager default would be wrong in that case, but that's a minor issue.
Brent, what issue where you seeing?
virt-manager doesn't depend on the 'spice' RPM though - that's the server side and legacy client code. It depends on 'spice-gtk' which is cross-platform.
$ grep Exclusive spice-gtk.spec
- Remove ExclusiveArch. While spice-gtk will build on ARM and PPC, it
Cole, we're good now. Thanks for your help on IRC
