The nearest would be the checksetup.pl script. That reports Bugzilla 
requires DBD::mysql 4.0 or later and that I should install it from CPAN 
(see below). I currently have perl-DBD-MySQL-3.0007-2.el5 which is the 
latest one from yum.

So, if the RHEL's yum upgrade of Bugzilla from 3.0.2 to 3.2.4 also 
required that perl-DBD-MySQL be upgraded to 4.0 or later, why wasn't it? 
Ergo I conclude that in fact it's not needed and that something else is 
wrong. I can't be the only person running Bugzilla on CentOS/RHEL 5! It 
does mean that checksetup.pl doesn't complete though. Obviously 
installing from CPAN is not the right answer.

Many thanks,
Chris R.
