Ah, and I forget they do not work for multilibs as pkgconfig has no

First and most important: How can I distinguish them when *not* using
pkgconfig() BuildRequires?

BuildRequires: glibc-devel-32bit

And even if pkg-config itself has no way to distinguish them
/usr/lib/rpm/ could be modified to include arch
information (upstream, to preserve cross-distro compatibility).

That's true. But then we are not using pkgconfig (well, we are not
anyways, we are just creating fake pkgconfig(foo) provides).
