Same thing happening here, on SL6 and CentOS6. So its not just you. 
Unfortunately I've had to switch to OpenLDAP for a bit until I can get 
this resolved (probably not for another month...). The weird thing is a 
lot of 389-ds packages are built and sitting in the EPEL repo, but 
389-ds-base isn't present and all that perl madness is just missing. I 
did find the lack of discussion a little odd -- seems like people would 
notice this missing.

If anyone knows a magical workaround that would permit a proper 389 
install it would be greatly appreciated (like "Geeze, get with it you 
knuckleheads, its been relabeled to the 390-ds now, duh.").
