Furthermore there is no such thing as "32bit Java" (or "64bit Java").
Java bytecode is machine independent. Thus, a BuildRequires on
32bit-java makes no sense.

It's possible for some proprietary stuff to have native parts though.
The sun java wireless toolkit for example has some and therefore
requires a 32bit VM.
