I don't have the option of using RT 3.6 that EPEL packages because I'm trying to migrate an existing 3.8 system to a CentOS box.

no; it means that if you need newer versions of core Perl modules (which it sounds like you do), then you need to break your perl-5.8.8 package a bit.  the good news is that RPMforge Perl modules install into the vendor_perl branch, so they shouldn't be clobbering the actual .pm files, but you will have to install with rpm --excludedocs to get past the man page conflicts (or with --force if you want the update man pages).  

RT is indeed difficult to install under RHEL, especially recent versions; honestly, if you can, you may want to wait until CentOS 6 is out.

installing from CPAN is a bad idea; don't do that.  


If this were played upon a stage now, I could condemn it as an improbable fiction. - Fabian, Twelfth Night, III,v
