Actually this is a bug.  If the packages are offered in the same repo,
they should install together (barring explicit conflicts listed in the
spec file).  Looks like the example makefile may be generated at build
time, or touched in someway so that it is different when on i686 and
x86_64.  That should not happen, they should be the same.
