It tried to work out if it should install the i386 or x86_64 by working 
from the architecture of your perl installation. In RedHat-based systems 
this always gives you i386 or x86_64, but apparently your SuSE system is 
giving i586 instead so it isn't finding the file. Install the
rpm -Uvh tnef*.i386.rpm
and then re-run and it will work fine.
