I had a similar problem trying to upgrade from FC2 to a rawhide kernel.  I had 
downloaded a bunch of RPM files using wget and used rpm -F to try to do the 
update.  I assumed that I was either missing updated file or that I had a 
synchronization problems with some files I downloaded newer than others.  For 
example, I am assuming that what is happening is that you have a 
less-than-current version of the psa-whatever packages and they are insisting on 
keeping old versions of libz.so etc. and keeping you from updating to new ones.  
If I understand what cvs is supposed to do, I would have been better off using 
cvs rather than wget.  Hopefully, more knowledgeable people here can expand on 
this or will correct me if I am wrong.

PS  I have had plenty of problems about 32- vs 64-bit libraries in FC2, 
especially with gtk2/gdk/pixbuf but I don't think it is the same thing and it 
merits a separate post.
