As a side note, you've probably gotten yourself in to an unrecoverable state
with RPM having already installed all those PPC RPM's on your Fedora 8
x86_64 systems. The easiest thing to do is probably reinstall but if you
want, you can try removing them all with something like this:

cd /path/to/downloaded/RPMS
ls | grep -oP .+?\(\?=.x86_64\\.rpm\) | xargs rpm -e

The command will extract the names of the RPM's known by RPM that you
installed and then ask RPM to remove them.
