perl-NetAddr-IP-4.044-1.el5.rf   <=== I think that is the problem package

I don't know if that version is required by the repoforge packages ... but base contains perl-NetAddr-IP-4.027-5.el5_6

I would see if I could replace perl-NetAddr-IP-4.044-1.el5.rf from repoforge with perl-NetAddr-IP-4.027-5.el5_6 from base.
