I have no idea why the packages are installed along with the x86_64 ones however I add excludepkgs=*.i386 *.i686 to yum.conf and it cakes care of that.

Out of pure curiosity:
Does anybody know why both i386 and x86_64 are installed by default?

On other x86_64 platforms I rather tend to cherrypick the i386
packages and install them on a case by case basis.
