[CentOS] [Possibly OT] rpm conflicts has me confused

I can install the default ppp-2.4.4-2, but when I try to
install an rpm I built from Sangoma's ppp-184.108.40.206 (using
checkinstall-1.6.1) I get this error:
# rpm -ivh ppp.220.127.116.11-1.eai.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
ppp < 2.4.3-3 conflicts with kernel-2.6.18-162.2.1.el5.i686
Isn't 18.104.22.168 > 2.4.3-3 ???
yum localinstall ppp.22.214.171.124-1.eai.i386.rpm --nogpgcheck
gives some advice:
You could try using --skip-broken to work around the problem
You could try running: package-cleanup --problems
rpm -Va --nofiles --nodigest
and I tried each of those, but no joy.
Is this an rpm bug, a checkinstall bug, or PEBKAC
(problem exists between keyboard and chair)?
