Hello list,

the package perl-DateTime-TimeZone-0.69.2-1.el5.rf.noarch.rpm contains a 
requirement for Win32::TieRegistry which is not in the DAG nor it's 
really necessary for an RPM.

% rpm -q --requires -p \
  perl-DateTime-TimeZone-0.69.2-1.el5.rf.noarch.rpm | grep Win32
perl(Win32::TieRegistry)
%

Possible solutions:

- ignore: install with force
- keep: the old version
- patch: remove the requirement for Win32::TieRegistry so this module 
will not work on windows machines. Well, I can live with that.
- trick: the RPM builder and requirement finder of RPM. How can I do 
that? Is this a good idee?

Thanks for the feedback.
