I think it actually built stuff okay, but has calculated the
architecture wrongly.
Please can you send me the output of
rpm -qi perl
rpm -qa | grep '^perl'
rpm -q --queryformat='%{NAME} %{VERSION} %{ARCH}\n' perl
which perl
perl -v

For some reason it is picking up both i386 and x86_64 as the
architecture, when it should just be x86_64 (which is what RHEL4 returns).

That bunch of commands should give me an idea what is happening.
