I dont't think so. SDL moves architecture specific header file into
a private directory:

# Rename SDL_config.h to SDL_config-<arch>.h to avoid file conflicts on
# multilib systems and install SDL_config.h wrapper
mv %{buildroot}/%{_includedir}/SDL/SDL_config.h
install -m644 %{SOURCE1} %{buildroot}/%{_includedir}/SDL/SDL_config.h

And installs a wrapper (SOURCE1) to replace the original location. The
wrapper is just a bunch of #if branches:

#if defined(__i386__)
#include "SDL_config-i386.h"
#elif defined(__ia64__)
#include "SDL_config-ia64.h"

Though a standardized path would be nice.
