updating my mail-gateways today, perl-Net-Server-0.93-1.el3.rf.noarch.rpm
got installed. Which throws amavisd-new < 2.4.0 into a fit, as some
incompatible changes have been made. Which would be no problem, if
amavisd-new-2.4.0-2.el3.rf.i386.rpm would be installable on EL3. Which it

I wrote about that problem before: amavisd-new >= 2.3 needs
perl(Digest::MD5) >= 2.22 which cannot be installed, as perl 5.8.0 already
provides this in an older version. 

RPMs for FC2 and FC1 probably have the same problem, as the perl version on
those should also be ~5.8.0.

So could you please stop distributing amavisd-new >= 2.3.0 and
perl-Net-Server > 0.90 for RHEL3, as those are clearly not installable and
will leave behind a broken amavisd-setup (even if you exclude amavisd-new
from being updated).
