I've rebuilt quite a few packages, no problems until I tried php...
I get a few i386 packages installed, for a reason that is beyond me! It's

I'm really confused as to why yum chooses to install those i386 files when
the arch isn't specified... I'll try to get yum to be more verbose and try
to find out.
it's intended behavior.
yum will install the highest version and best arch of all packages for
each multilib 'branch' available for the specified package name.
so if you just specify foo
and foo.i686, foo.x86_64 and foo.i386 are available then yum will
yum resolves packages to install based on the multilib sets. so 64bit

against each other.
