..if you want the bells and whistles (ie nice correlation between menus
and icons), sure. if you want revisions that work, then maybe best to move
to standard RPMs  :-)

anyway, i think I've already covered the PERL problem by mentioning 5.6.0
(not sure what RPM flavours that comes in though....I just get the .tar.gz
and compile is from source (far less hassle since I have to place such
things on solaris, Unix, Linux, etc) - AND i get to easily choose where
they install on the system ;-) )
