I tried both 4.39.6 and 4.40.2-1, same results. says stuff like:
"I think your system will build architecture-dependent modules for i386x86_64"

Obviously, i386x86_64 is wrong...

The installer fails with things like:

Missing file /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386x86_64/MailScanner-perl-MIME-Base64-3.05-5.i386x86_64.rpm.
Missing file /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386x86_64/perl-HTML-Parser-3.45-1.i386x86_64.rpm
Missing file /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386x86_64/perl-Compress-Zlib-1.33-2.i386x86_64.rpm

Also, perl-Archive-Zip completely fails to build:
