package biosflash-1.2-1 is intended for a x86_64 architecture
muny20:/tmp# uname -m
x86_64
muny20:/tmp# rpm --version
RPM version 4.4.1

On another machine with an older rpm binary:
eou15:/tmp# rpm -i foo-1.1.1.x86_64.rpm 
eou15:/tmp# uname -m
x86_64
eou15:/tmp# rpm --version
RPM version 4.0.2

I did compile the new rpm binary with
./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man --without-selinux  --build i386-gnu-linux

I did pick i386-gnu-linux because I have a 32bit userland and I did not 
want a 64bit rpm binary. I'm not sure if this baked in my arch in the rpm
binary though, I hope not.

The old rpm:
eou15:/tmp# grep -r x86-64 /usr/lib/rpm
eou15:/tmp#

The new rpm:
muny20:/tmp#  grep -r x86-64 /usr/lib/rpm
/usr/lib/rpm/magic:>>18 leshort         62              AMD x86-64,
Binary file /usr/lib/rpm/magic.mgc matches
muny20:/tmp# 


Any idea how I can tell the new rpm to rely on my arch as in uname -m as
opposed to whatever else it is doing?

Thanks,
Marc
