When i last installed it yum install did bring in the dependencies
(pretty sure install and localinstall do the same in that respect).
Unfortunately it brought in the x86_64 version of various libraries.
Unfortunately Google provide x86_64 rpms for most of their stuff but a
lot of it is actually x86_32. I can only assume they package them as
x86_64 only for appearances or easy upgrading if they decide to
provide actual x86_64 in the future. Most likely both.
