This happens during an update via yum update to RHEL5 in Bright Cluster Manager 5.1. It's actually an issue with the package distributed by RHEL5, so Bright Cluster Manager cannot do anything about it.
In most cases the /usr/bin/X11 directory is empty, and can be removed without a problem. If the directory is not empty it can be renamed to X11.old for example. After that the package can be updated.
