i suppose you wanted to make symlink:
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/athlon-pld-linux-thread-multi -> /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i686-pld-linux-thread-multi 

but that will not fix such rpm dependency errors:
error: /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i686-pld-linux-thread-multi is required by installed perl-Date-Calc-5.4-1.i686

as /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.0/i686-pld-linux-thread-multi is dirdep,
and symlinkdep will not satisfy it (didn't test but i'm almost sure of this 
as /etc/httpd/httpd.conf dirdep was not solved by symlink in apache-base)
