Once I build a system and bring it to our defined baseline, I rarely use rpm
from that point forward...I custom roll almost everything -- especially
apache. (red hat's layout makes my skin crawl) When did CPAN become so bad?
It was the defacto standard and source of truth for perl modules 10 years
ago. I trust CPAN over any rpm provided by red hat. Maybe things have
changed, it has been several years since I got down and dirty with perl
modules...

Anyway, problem is solved by changing perl -w to simply just perl. Since
this system is buried behind 2 pix firewalls and only used for internal use
Im not to concerned.
