Make centos5 64bit yum install only x86_64 packages

Everytime you install or update packages with yum on Centos5/RHEL5, it tries to install both x86_64 and i386 versions of the package if both are available.

multilib_policy=all

what means install all available architectures of package. For example, if you are running 64bit system, yum will first try to install package.x86_64, if it`s not available yum will fall back to i386 and noarch.
This was changed ...
