I've just had a problem on one of my x86_64 boxes with openssl  
package.  I have an 32-bit only application that requires openssl  
libraries.  When I attempted to install openssl.i686 (in addition to  
already present openssl.x86_64), it failed.  The rpm complained about  
conflicting files (they were all manpages), and I needed to use  
--force option to install the thing.

The good folks at Red Hat were not able to reproduce it, and I don't  
have a spare x86_64 box to test it with original RHEL4 myself.

Would be nice if somebody could test installing openssl.i686 (in  
parallel to openssl.x86_64) on x86_64 box, both under CentOS 4 and  
under original RHEL4.  It could be just something wrong with my  
installation, or there might be discrepancy between CentOS and RHEL  
openssl packages.
