Here is a part of Arch pkg
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
url="http://${_pkgname}.sourceforge.net/"
license=('GPL')
depends=('qt4' 'fftw' 'shared-mime-info' 'libvorbis')
if [ "$CARCH" = "x86_64" ]; then
depends[${#depends[@]}]=soundtouch
elif [ "$CARCH" = "i686" ]; then
depends[${#depends[@]}]=lib32-soundtouch
fi
optdepends=('jack: for Jack Audio Connection Kit support'
'libpulse: for PulseAudio')

makedepends=('mercurial' 'cmake' 'qt4' 'fftw' 'libvorbis' 'soundtouch')
install="${pkgname}.install"

When user will have libpulse it builds with it. The same with jack.

How do You think, will it work with others 64bit rpm-s distros ?

Probably in fedora. In Mandriva i don't know because they use rpm5 (instead rpm.org that use mageia and fedora)

I used this spec:
http://svnweb.mageia.org/packages/cauldron/nootka/current/SPECS/nootka.spec?revision=280846&view=markup
normaly it will be included in the official repos of Mageia for the next version Mageia 3.

There is posibility to build 'universal' rpm but unfortinately I didn't put description in README.
If You invoke cpack -G RPM in build directory after compilation, You will get nootka's binary rpm, but as I understand, it is not pure distro way.
However You can have a look to nootka's sources, in packaging/rpm/nootka.spec.in there is template for this rpm.
Can You generate such rpm also, I will complete downloads.

It's great that nootka is going to be in official Mageia repositories. Maybe I will be ready with next stable release to that time.
Greetings!

I am not sure but i think that this rpm may be installed correctly in many rpm distro, as the files that installs are in "standard" paths. The problem is that i don't know other distro's packages policy and i cannot be sure for installation in other distros
