Don't take this as authoritative, I'm not on the 389-ds team.

I think the problem is that 389-ds-base was added to RHEL as a base 
package in 6.1 so if it gets added to epel there is going to be a conflict.

You can probably get the missing src rpms from 

Finding the right package for perl dependencies seems to be more an art 
than a skill. The names don't always line up nicely. One hint is that 
the DS* requirements are provided by 389-ds-base itself.
