no, that's not the case; it looks like Encode 2.12 is part of Perl 5.8.8 core, and unfortunately, RH is technically doing the right thing by packaging Encode as part of the perl-5.8.8 RPM.

for our part, it means that perl-Encode needs an rfx tag, since if Khusro forces an install of perl-Encode-2.39, then he's breaking his existing perl package, and he should be aware of it.

Khusro, why are you trying to install a newer Encode than provided?  do you specifically need a version later than 2.12?  why?
