I was just trying to use cpan2rpm to build Math::BigInt
(CENTOS 5 does not have a recent enough version in the Perl base for
cpan2rpm fails at line 1268 in untar() because the groupname has a space
in it, so (split) gets the time instead of the filename.
I'm not sure why the verbose option is used at all; I deleted it and
cpan2rpm worked OK.
(I read the last message to see if the list was still active, and tried
to build cpanspec 1.78 on CENTOS 6 to see what that was like. There's no
perl-Parse-CPAN-Packages in the standard repositories, and when
I try to install one from CENTOS 5 or build it natively I get a whole
bunch of other prerequisites and errors. At least cpan2rpm works for me,
most of the time...)
