Yes, the config that ships is subtly broken and won't allow building of 
a couple packages (grub and syslinux), as you just found out.

Building of grub and syslinux packages on x86_64 need glibc-devel.i386 
which pulls in glibc.i686 so the exclude line should exclude all .i?86 
files except these two.
