Hi Jeff,

These problems are caused by perl, because perl5.004 and perl5.005 are
_not_ compatible.

Unfortunately i have no access to a RH6.0 linux box, so this RPM was
build on a RH5.2

It looks like Michael succeded in building such an RPM, maybe he could
put it on a public URL so that you can grab it. Is it possible, Michael?
