after the update of pango to 1.12.4-3, firefox is refusing to start on
a x86_64 system with the i386 version of firefox (the only one
installed for the usual plugin, java etc etc reasons).
Please note that both the i386 and x86_64 versions of pango are installed
on this machine (and they were before) because firefox and other
applications require the 32 bit one as well.

The error message claims that /etc/pango/pango.modules is probably
missing. These file(s) are actually there inside

/etc/pango/i686-redhat-linux-gnu/ and /etc/pango/x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu/

while in the previous version they were inside

/etc/pango/i386-redhat-linux-gnu/ and /etc/pango/x86_64-redhat-linux-gnu/

rolling back to 1.2.3-1 (only for the i386 version) is enough to fix
things (at least for firefox, I have yet to test other apps).

Is there anything badly botched with this pango update (at least on
x86_64 systems, my 32 bit laptop has no issue)?
chmod 0644 pango.modules probably helps. See a discussion on:
