There are two notable buigs building, and using, cpan2rpm on RHEL 6.
* The 'perl Makefile.PL' process builds a Makefile that installs most
components in /usr/local. This is dealth with by RHEL with their
current MakeMaker and perl by using:
perl Makefile.PL INSTALLDIRS=vendor
This workg great for me on RHEL 6, and I've published patches at
* The 'Pod::Text" module is no longer in perl-5.10, and was only
required to provide the 'Pod::Parser' module, which is still
available. The patch for that is at:
* There is even a cpan2rpm.spec file there to use right now, along
with the patches in the git repository, to build and a Makefile to
build RPM's for different releases usin g"mock". This has been very
useful to me, and is making my life a lot easier right now instlalling
new and old Perl modules as RPM's on verious RPM based distros.
