I started to run down this rabbit hole and had most of it built via
mock and one of dag's cpan-> rpm scripts. After a few rounds of
builds, it became immediately apparent that some of the requirements
directly conflict with the perl rpm shipped by centos and RHEL.
Specifically the Encode bits required by RT 3.8 are much newer than
what is provided in the centos perl rpm. I wasn't willing to do that
level of replacement when building RT because I didn't need the
feature sets in 3.8 and I wasn't aware of what else that might impact
for other users.
