You can accomplish the same thing a little simpler like so:

yum --disablerepo="*" --enablerepo=epel [...]

I suspect somewhere along the way you got a mixed installation between
EPEL and RPMForge.  They both have clam* packages with similar names,
but the files are put into different directories, etc. and end up
causing cross-repo conflicts.

Your best bet is to pick one, and put an exclude= line in the other
repo file to avoid conflicts.
