Since I don't have a local rawhide mirror, I wrote a python script to load
all rawhide repo metadata and examine the archivesize attribute of all
packages. The theory behind this is that many released source rpms were
built on powerpc build servers, [and for any binary/noarch rpm with a zero
archivesize I used the name of the corresponding source rpm to build
the complete list of pkg names].
