This looks to me like you tried installation using e.g. the fc14
installer (that has a glibc "too new" for SL6), and installed with the
fc3 on top of that (SL6 works well with the fc13 or lower installer).
Since the installers write to the same directory, the fc3 installer
finds that the files are already there and does basically nothing that
would fix the problem, i.e. replace the binaries and libs.
So just remove the /usr/local/phenix-1.8.1-1168 directory (or its
contents) before you try a different installer.
(Side note: maybe the installer should do that automatically, but there
are probably reasons why it doesn't)
