Description of problem:
The Quagga package incorrectly claims to obsolete Bird (and other routing packages).

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name       : quagga
Arch       : x86_64
Version    : 0.98.6
Release    : 5.el5_5.1
Size       : 1.1 M
Repo       : updates

How reproducible:
Try to install Bird automagically (as from a kickstart, for example).
From the .spec file for Quagga :
Obsoletes: bird gated mrt zebra

Apparently it was acknowledged and marked to be fixed in Fedora 10.
It's still a problem in CentOS 5.5 .

This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated in the
current release, Red Hat is unfortunately unable to address this
request at this time. Red Hat invites you to ask your support
representative to propose this request, if appropriate and relevant,
in the next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

What is the issue with fixing this?  It's a simple spec file change with limited consequences.
