There is a bug here.  The /build/ process relies on a path that is arch
specific in order to /build/ the noarch package.  Usually the things we
need to build are in a static location in /usr/bin or /usr/libexec
rather than directly in %_libdir, but it is what it is.  Just because
the /build/ process relies upon something that is arch specific doesn't
make the end result arch specific as well, or else every package made of
scripted language code would be arch specific since the interpreter
itself is arch specific.
