TBH, I think even this would be appropriate:

%lcd4linux: amd64 armel i386

but as it seems to build on alpha, I don't care that much.

s390 doesn't make sense at all, as lcd4linux needs special lcd hardware
attached locally at a parallel port or via usb which AFAIUI s390 doesn't
provide. For alpha I have no idea if there is support for such hardware.
