Figure there's several ways to do this. I'd do some macro magic and commit
the same spec file to all branches. But as there's no changed in f18 / f19
/ rawhide, I'd only initiate a new build on el6 though doing builds on all
platforms without pushing them as updates won't do much harm, either.

But since this problem is only really relevant to koji (i.e. the users are
unaffected), I think building it once for only just el6 is enough - you
shouldn't even need to push an update at all. It's just about stopping koji
from trying to build packages for those architectures.
