[users] [Dries] perl-Config-General again (RHEL3 and FC1/RH9 and below)

as already posted on the freshrpms list I had some problems with the
perl-Config-General rpm from the repository, as it has a dependency on
perl(Carp::Heavy) which perl in version 5.8.0 and below doesn't provide.

By looking at the code I found out that there is a debian specific
"patch" in General.pm, which causes this. So removing this makes the rpm
build with sane dependencies. The patches to the spec file and to the perl
module are attached.
