Rpm itself does not, and that is why I added explicit dependencies to
the kernels and all kernel module package so that the kernel module
package has to match the architecture of the kernel it is installed with
(check what packages provide with "rpm -q --provides package_name", and
what they need with "rpm -q --requires package_name). 

So, if you have a Planet CCRMA kernel with architecture i586 and you try
to install a kernel-module-alsa package with architecture i686, rpm
should complain about a missing dependency. If it does not, then there's
a bug in my packages.
