[suggest] perl modules with conflicting man pages

Hi, there are a couple perl modules in rpmforge which upgrade older 
versions in perl core, but the perl modules have man pages which exist 
in perl core and prevent them from being installed. These seem to be 
requirements for other perl modules so it is preventing yum from 
installing other modules. Here are some example errors from yum:

   file /usr/share/man/man3/IO::Socket::UNIX.3pm.gz from install of 
perl-IO-1.2301-1.el5.rf conflicts with file from package

   file /usr/bin/enc2xs from install of perl-Encode-2.25-1.el5.rf
