Is it possible for you to install the perl module from CPAN rather than
rpmforge for testing proposes?  I have a feeling the issue is not the
rpmforge package but rather the newer versions of the software itself.  If
it is the DBD::SQLite software rather than the packaging, you could then
submit this as a bug to the maintainers.
