I just grabbed the new EL5 binary's for my x64 VPS from CRAN. However, where
updates usually go smoothly, I now get these errors:

-bash-3.2# rpm -i R-2.9.1-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        R-devel = 2.9.1-1.el5 is needed by R-2.9.1-1.el5.x86_64

-bash-3.2# rpm -i R-core-2.9.1-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        perl(File::Copy::Recursive) is needed by R-core-2.9.1-1.el5.x86_64

-bash-3.2# rpm -i R-devel-2.9.1-1.el5.x86_64.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
        R-core = 2.9.1-1.el5 is needed by R-devel-2.9.1-1.el5.x86_64
        pcre-devel is needed by R-devel-2.9.1-1.el5.x86_64

What could be the problem?
