Many thanks... I have discovered what caused the problem...

The machine is a server which was configured by three people and one of them 
compiled perl rpms by hand to satisfy mailscanner... Indeed he didn't know 
anything about yum configuration on that particular machine and his linux 
skills are focused towards Debian anyway...

Later investigation took me to evil install.sh script in Mailscanner, which 
attempts to install some rpm packages with --force parameter. Is there some 
chance to add Mailscanner to rpmforge as someone suggested last week?

Thanks for your help.
