Sorry, I have to jump in here ;-)

The last sentence is not 100% correct. Please open a separate bug for it just as
the Review Guidelines demand:

Each architecture listed in ExcludeArch needs to have a bug filed in bugzilla,
describing the reason that the package does not compile/build/work on that
architecture. The bug number should then be placed in a comment, next to the
corresponding ExcludeArch line. New packages will not have bugzilla entries
during the review process, so they should put this description in the comment
until the package is approved, then file the bugzilla entry, and replace the
long explanation with the bug number. The bug should be marked as blocking one
(or more) of the following bugs to simplify tracking such issues:
FE-ExcludeArch-x86, FE-ExcludeArch-x64, FE-ExcludeArch-ppc

(Okay, the last sentence is just half an hour old, but the other part is older.)

Paul, and please attach the build-log with the error to that bug because it will
be deleted from the server in some days.

And btw: A simple google search shows that other distributions were able to get
it running on x86_64 so it's probably not that hard to fix (even if the packager
has no access to that x86_64).

/me also wonders if we need a defined wait period (4 days?) before a ExludeArch
like this is allowed (especially in new packages) -- people interested in x86_64
practically had no chance to look at this problem and help fixing before the
package was pushed. That not how it should work IMHO.
