Yes, I've been considering to remove ldap-account-manager, it should not 
have been published anyway. There are indeed other missing perl 
dependencies and Dries is doing his best to get rid of most, but given the 
fact that our RHEL3 entitlements have worn out and his disk has crashed.

Little work has been spend to make sure the RHEL3 perl packages still 
build. (Even though most of it requires a little change to make it build).
We're waiting for our entitlements to be re-activated, if not we have to 
look at taolinux/centos for building. I prefer to use a real RHEL though.
