The specfile¹ says:

# Upstream makes *heavy* use of inline x86 asm this would take extensive
# work to support anything other than x86. See the URL for more info.
# http://psyco.sourceforge.net/links.html
# 
# """
# Here are a couple of non-Pythonic dynamic compilation projects. I am
# often pointed to them as potentials back-ends for Psyco, to help make
# Psyco portable beyond the current x86 machine code. However, I consider
# them as not really suited for Psyco.
