I raised this one (on an el5 server though) 2-3 months ago. You'll find Dries'
response in the mailing list archives.

Although I still "need" it to install correctly on the el5 server, Dries
seemed to indicate this was not a "real" error from the RPM but from perl, so
you could just force install it I think.

Dries will be able to answer this better though, the need for it my end is
still high but not critical (yet) which is why I haven't pursued it or
attempted to continue trouble-shooting the problem myself.
