I yanked it off arix.net?

All this effort is to build a CentOS vm for ASSP 2.0 which is pretty close
to not being an option anymore as the hints at ASSP's dependencies are only
a cpan install script...

I would be grateful for any pointers to newer more supported methods!

That looks interesting which leads me to really sit here and rethink
my use of ASSP given the work to deduce what rpm's are in base or easily
accessible from rpmforge and exclude them. I am starting to think this is
so not worth the effort!

Thanks for the pointer on cpan2dist.
