This is what you'll see on a 32-bit machine - the bittorrent package
itself is a no-arch package, which means it doesn't care what the
underlying architecture is (translation: probably a scripting language
- shell, perl, python, etc.).  The 64-bit entries usually show only if
you are actually running a 64 bit machine.  There are also some
switches you can use that show more, but I'm not familiar with them
(DKDC :-).

This is only true if you have both the yum-protectbase and
yum-priorities plugins installed, in which case you should remove the
protectbase plugin - it is recommended that you _not_ run both
