How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. On alphas [eg on AlphaCore-0.9] yum -y update 

Additional info:

  As project leader on alpha-core wich is an effort to port fedora core for alpha, kindly   
request to merge this small patch mainline. We prepare ourselfs to push as much 
possible alpha specific patches to Fedora mainline, and expect to push out FC4 too. 
  Thanks !

Committed to upstream yum, so we'll get this when 2.3.3 comes out.
