First, I don't think you can reference arch like that in a spec.

Secondly, why don't you split out the two libs into a festival-libs package, 
that is required by festival?  festival-devel will pick up the library 
requires out of the -libs package, the libs package will have a generic 
requires on festival, not an arch specific one.  This will leave 
festival-devel and festival-libs as multiarch, while festival itself is not.  
This is the solution that many other packages use.
