Well, in and ideal world plague, mock or something else would pass the 

- version of the latest kernel to the rpmbuild-call via "--define
kversion foo"
- all variants (smp, "", xen0, xenU, ...) via "--define kvariants bar

when building the package. That would avoid the hardcoding of those vars
in the spec file.

ppc64 would probably require a special builder afaik where *.ppc64 isn't
excluded? I tried that once -- worked fine.
