No; that's entirely unnecessary. Yum _should_ automagically_ point
itself at 64-bit repos instead of 32-bit if you are running a 64-bit
setup. If it doesn't, please post a bug report about it to
https://bugzilla.redhat.com with details on the error and how to
reproduce it, etc.

For what it's worth, I've been running 64-bit since FC6 (now F-7 with a
rawhide KVM instance) when I first acquired 64-bit capable hardware. So
far, so good. (It's not perfect....yet. ^_^)
