Ok, Ill speak with Dan Riek and see what we can do on the RHEL side.   
Additionally I will build a new
python-imaging on the el5 branch with the 1.1.5 version and a release 
that is lower than the one in RHEL
that is only for ppc arch.
In this way the situation is fixed immediately and if python-imaging is 
added to RHELppc in the near future
I will dead the package again.
