With the current version of yum (3.2.8), the easiest way is to add an
exclude line in yum.conf like:

exclude=*.i386 *.i686

Note that you might want to remove all i386/i585 packages that are
already on the system to make it a pure x86_64 system. A newer version
of yum has rectified the issue.  Some details can be found in this
mailing list thread:
