I fail to understand why you are making all this fuzz.

* FC-6/ppc64 has never been supported, because ppc64 did not exist. 

* OSG (and therefore all packages depending on it) has never been
supported on FC-7/ppc64.


This issue had been hidden, because OSG in FC-7's release had predated
introduction of the ppc64 (there had not been a mass-rebuild!)

After FC-7 had been released, post-release rebuilds of OSG had shown to
be problematic on ppc64, which had made it inevitable to resort to
"ExcludeArch: ppc64" to let building succeed for other archs.

i.e. the rebuild of FC-7's OSG simply has made a problem with your specs
and with Fedora's infrastructure explicit, but actually nothing has
changed anything.
