dont just add that line in there, first make sure you yum erase all your 
32bit apps and rpm's ( yum erase *.i386 *.i586 *.i686 ), otherwise you 
are going to leave behind a large number of orphaned rpm's.

if you need those 32bit apps, consider just excluding the 
fontconfig.i386 rpm. its a problem known since early 4.0 release days :(
