[CentOS] yum update error

For some reason all the perl man pages cause yum errors like
Transaction Check Error:
  file /usr/share/man/man1/c2ph.1.gz from install of
  perl-5.8.8-32.el5_5.2.x86_64 conflicts with file from package

1. I don't really see how the man pages can cause conflicts;
2. More importantly, how should I deal with this?
[I've updated everything else with yum --exclude=perl* update.]
