Sorry for the cross-posting, I'm trying to get a clue...

Subject: Mock issue with ifarch BuildRequires
To: Discussion of Fedora build system <fedora-buildsys-list at>

I am trying to run the tests included in the BuildBot package during
the RPM build, and one of the tests requires darcs, which is built in
Fedora ExclusiveArch %{ix86} x86_64 ppc alpha.
Now, I'm adding to buildbot's spec[1] file an ifarch like:

%ifarch %{ix86} x86_64 ppc alpha
# darcs ExclusiveArchs
BuildRequires:  darcs

but it seems darcs is never installed in the buildroot [2]

am I just doing something stupid or there's a bug somewhere?
