I want to use

Requires: vbetool
in a package, which should work according to maximum rpm[1] and was suggested by Mamoru Tasaka. Nevertheless koji does not want to build[2] this for ppc(64) because of a missing vbetool. Does someone spot the error in the spec[3]?
ifnarch does not work with a set of archs (like ifarch does). Don't
read it like "if arch NOT in [ppc,ppc64]", but like "if arch NOT equal
to ppc" (a single value only!). So, in your spec, when the targetarch
is ppc, your %ifnarch holds true because ppc!=ppc64, and when the
targetarch is ppc64, it holds true because ppc64!=ppc.

Hmm, scratch that. I have the feeling I've mixed it up with something
else. %ifnarch should really be "NOT %ifarch".

Note: pm-utils dependency problem for vbetool commented here is actually
     not due to the usage of %ifnarch (bug 285361)
