    I've been using RPM5 on OpenSolaris for a couple weeks now 
(currently 5.1.4.) I just installed yum aswell. I've run into a problem 
where yum doesn't think that noarch packages are acceptable, so it 
ignores them and only displays i86pc packages. I think it gets its list 
from rpm. I know there used to be some rpmrc code that defined 
compatible archs, and remapped i86pc to i386.  I'm ok with i86pc staying 
that way, but I need to find a way to have rpm think noarch is 
compatible. Any suggestions as to where I should look/what I could patch ?
