No matter how often you download and install File::Slurp, rpm won't take
notice of that.
You would need a rpm of that perl module, which probably is somewhere near
the original rpm, or part of your distribution (mandrake?).

If File::Slurp is installed gimp will use it. It's just that the rpm
insists on having a _rpm_ version of File::Slurp. If you install it
without rpm and override rpm using --nodeps all should be fine.
