I see, thanks, going to check the specs file of the new rpm.

Hm, I'm not too familiar with building rpms. Building the spamassassin rpm 
from the source with the provided specs file was easy, but mangling with

Anyway, is it possible to omit some packages from yum update? I read man 
yum but it doesn't mention this.
