The problem is, that it appears that it's the fontconfig.i386 it 
attempts to install as part of the xorg-x11-deprecated-libs installation.

[root at machine ~]# yum erase fontconfig.i386
Setting up Remove Process
No Packages marked for removal

Also, is it not strange that both the i386 and x86_64 packages get 
picked for installation:
