Yep.  Caused by not being able to run that pesky "yum update"...

What we had was a mod_ssl installed from RPM (not from yum) by the 
box-owner, who then hired us to figure out why it didn't work.

Here's what I did, in order, to fix the problem, once I figured out that 
we had a version mismatch:

  rpm -e mod_ssl
  yum update
  cd /etc
  cp yum.conf yum.conf.orig
  cp yum.conf.rpmnew yum.conf
  yum install mod_ssl
  yum update

and all is now good.

I didn't know about the macros.  Thanks!  I don't have an .rpmmacros 
file; I presume I can just add it with the contents from above?

We don't have a repo section in our /etc/yum.config file.  Should we?

Again thanks!
