The problem is in "pacman -Sp --print-format %n poppler-qt": on x86_64 it finds poppler-qt4, on mips64el it fails since we haven't removed poppler-qt yet which needs an older version of poppler.

I think chcleanup should fail with a specific error message in this case, since the following build would fail if pacman cannot install the dependency.  Trying to remove all packages could need one too, unless it's obvious that it won't occur for other reasons than unsatisfied dependencies.
