[CentOS] libc-client 2007 conflict when updating

FYI for others who might encounter this.

I just did a yum update (C5.1) and after a very long download of packages I 
get a transaction test failure:

Transaction Check Error:
  file /usr/lib/libc-client.so.2007 from install of 
libc-client2007-2007b-1.el5 conflicts with file from package 

I just realized this is coming from a conflict with a custom build I made 
of that package so that I could install uw-imap-devel as a prereq for 
building an asterisk package.

It looks like I can just erase those two packages and the yum update should 
go through.
