add ppc64le epel 7 support in redhat-rpm-config macros

I am trying to build epel 7 ppc64le using a redhat Server machine based on 
image redhat/beta_cds/RHEL-LE-7.1-Snapshot-5/Server/ppc64le/iso/RHEL-LE-7.1-20150129.0-Server-ppc64le-dvd1.iso

ghc-rpm-macros package reports "error: Architecture is not included: ppc64le"

After looking to redhat-rpm-config-9.1.0, I have seen a discrepancy between the version level used in fedora (redhat-rpm-config-27-1)

ghc_arches and ghc_ocaml at least seems not up to date.

Applying following patch on redhat-rpm-config-9.1.0 to reach the redhat-rpm-config-27-1 version, resolves ghc-rpm-macros build package, but I am not sure 
ocaml changes should be applied like this. Please check.

Same applies to aarch64.
