If there are no native (ELF) binaries, the only other thing to watch
out for is LIBDIRSUFFIX. If it installs stuff in /usr/lib on 32-bit and
/usr/lib64 on 64-bit, you'll want to get rid of that (/usr/share/$PRGNAM
is probably better).

The test is whether the same binary package runs correctly on either
32-bit or 64-bit.

Example: a lot of Perl packages install only perl code, nothing native,
but the install path is different (lib vs. lib64) so they can't use

...and, you have just made me realize that the 'domination' build I just
submitted should be noarch also (it's pure Java).
