Yes, we (Perl maintainers) already discussed this issue with you. But from
our point view it was problem of wrong script, which create perl-libs
for both
architectures (i686 and x86_64).
The easiest solution is to remove perl-libs-5.10.1-112.fc13.i686 from
but I will test if "obsolete" would work.
Imho yum could do solve it, so I'll create a RFE request for this issue.
