Bug Fix

Previously, the "" file did not include information on how to handle 64-bit PowerPC architectures. Attempting to install the fontforge-devel multilib PowerPC and 64-PowerPC RPM packages on the same 64-bit PowerPC machine led to conflicts between those packages. This update modifies the "" file, so that fontforge-devel multilib RPM packages are allowed to be installed on the same machine. The conflicts no longer occur in the described scenario.
All users of fontforge are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
