perl-SDL-2.1.3-2.el5.rf.i386 has a dependency on perl(Pod::ToDemo) 
written in its spec file, so that dep must be fulfilled to install 
perl-SDL... rpm doesn't care whether it's a dep on a "perl demo" or a 
crucial component ;-)

This is a packaging problem at rpmforge. If perl-SDL is available in the 
repo and perl-Pod-ToDemo is not in centos, rpmforge should have it.

Could someone at rpmforge try to build perl-Pod-ToDemo?
