That's strange. The META.yaml[1] for that module clearly includes
Class::Accessor as a pre-requisite. And I'd expect that to filter
through to become an rpm dependency. But looking at the spec file for
the rpm[2], it's clearly missing (with a few other dependencies).

Looks like the rpm spec was built by Dag Wieers <dag at wieers.com> - you
might want to mention your problem to him. Actually, a better approach
might be to use the official RPM Forge feedback mechanisms[3].

Hope that helps,
