ah -ha.

found it.

ppc -> rs6000 -> noarch.

so all the groups are taken care of in some sense or another.

ok - then if I build from the noarch matches UP then that might be the
best way to make sure the list is consistent.

I'll work on this later tonight b/c, while it's not critical for most
people, it's mildly interesting.

Also There are 2-4 items I'd like to port back into yum 0.9.X and make
another release there.
