[suggest] perl-WWW-Mechanize dependency problem on el4

After installing the latest perl-WWW-Mechanize-1.66 on el4, the module
fails as follows:

LWP::UserAgent version 5.827 required--this is only version 2.031 at
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/WWW/Mechanize.pm line 132.

Notwithstanding the invalid version interpretation from the module as
shown, the standard version of perl-libwww-perl on el4 is
perl-libwww-perl-5.79-5 and the centosplus version is
perl-libwww-perl-5.805-1.1.1.  I'd suggest either backing the published
version of perl-WWW-Mechanize down to one compatible with 5.79 or 5.805,
or releasing a newer perl-libwww-perl into rfx.  The dependency should
also be set in the RPM I think to avoid accidental installation.
