Ran into this, too, recently. I don't know whether it's the
'recommended' way, but removing perl-5.8.8-32.el5_5.1.i386 (on a 64bit
machine), which was possible without removing anything else, and then
updating (which included the installion of perl-5.8.8-32.el5_5.2.x86_64
fixed it for me.

HTH,

Timo
