As pointed out in the rpmforge mailing list, if you are complaining
about dependency issues not because you need the specific packages
with problems, but because you want to run "yum update" and be able to
get the security updates from the other repositories not affected by
the issue, and if you are on CentOS 5, you may use the "--skip-broken"
option of yum (not available in CentOS 4!) to skip updating packages
for which the dependencies are not met.

This is the command you should run in this case:
# yum --skip-broken update
