That package is not one that is modified by the CentOS team (any package
(except kernel) that is modified will have .centos in the name of the
package).  In the spec file, one has to specifically call out which
files have noreplace status ... and those must not be configured that

If this is a problem, and those files should not be replaced, please
post a bug at RedHat so that they can correct it in future versions.
