I'll be posting some time this afternoon more details on my setup, inlcuding a rough outline of the process I have thus far used (once I am satisfied that my process looks like it might actually work, that is, since I haven't gotten up to 5.6 yet.....).

I think its worth doing the 'find srpms that exclude ia64' and work out
their dep chain - I suspect you have quite a few more RPMS than are
needed to be upstream compatible.

Also worth keeping in mind is that while its a good idea to build the
BuildArch: noarch ones' you should not block on those failing - I
remember a bunch were not happy on ia64's arch type.
