I wouldn't be surprised by this; py27-wxpython depends on wxWidgets, which is not 64-bit ready; poke the wxWidgets developers about that if you're interested.

What does surprise me is that py27-wxpython restricts itself to i386 only; I wonder why no ppc, and I also wonder why it sets build_arch directly instead of using supported_archs.
