You cannot update an i386 (or compatible arch like i686) package
with x86_64 package or vice-versa.  If you have already installed
both (multilib situation) then you have to do both updates in
one transaction.  Something like

        rpm -Fvh openssl*{686,x86_64}.rpm

Otherwise you will get conflicts.  You can use also 'localinstall'
request in yum with something like the above but then use a
configuration which turns of gpgcheck for packages not signed with
any of installed keys.

The easiest way to check architectures of already installed
packages will be with something like

        grep openssl /var/log/rpmpkgs

as /etc/cron.daily/rpm script, which writes that log, is already 
using a format with an %{arch} tag in it.

See above.

I already did. If you see openssl-0.9.7f-7.10.3mj.src.rpm then
this has that change (which is easy to check in %changelog).

Ok then, does Tomas Mraz is aware about the issue? :-)
