Libraries are multilib'd. malaga-suomi-voikko only contains data
files (in arch specific directories), thus it isn't multilib'd => the
32-bit data package isn't available on x86_64 and you get the
dependency problem.

The obsolete doesn't work, since then you're not obsoleting the
package, instead you're obsoleting what the package provides:
$ rpm -q openoffice.org-voikko
$ rpm -q --provides openoffice.org-voikko
openoffice.org-voikko = 3.1.2-3.fc15
openoffice.org-voikko(x86-64) = 3.1.2-3.fc15

Thanks for the advice! I've made a libvoikko build without the %{_isa}
macro in the malaga-suomi-voikko dependency.
