Right. Some third party repos and/or varous out-of-band "repos" use different
package naming / origanizations. *Fedora* often uses "incompatable" package
naming WRT RHEL/CentOS. I guess when RedHat migrates a package set from
Fedora, there is sometimes package renaming and reorganization. Esp. for
things like Perl, PHP, and Python packages (often these are noarch packages),
so when you go back to a Fedora repo for something RedHat did not pick up, you
end up with this sort of problem (been there, done that). Often the only cure
is to grab the .src.rpm(s) and rebuild it(them), after manually installing the
various dependencies one by one (including rebuilding them as well, as
needed).  Often, the low-level .src.rpms build easily enough, so it becomes 
mostly a bit of tedium.

The OP, is probably going to have to install rpmbuild and set up a RPM Build
