Ah, it's a separate package.  OK thanks for the info!

But before I try that, I'm wondering, shouldn't it be easy
from the error message to simply understand what package
is creating the problem?

It turns out it's not sa-update specifically doing this, but the
restart of spamassassin itself:

/etc/init.d/spamassassin condrestart

Stopping spamd: [  OK  ]
Starting spamd: Subroutine Net::DNS::Resolver::Base::AF_INET6 redefined at /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8/Exporter.pm line 65.
 at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/i386-linux-thread-multi/Net/DNS/Resolver/Base.pm line 66
[  OK  ]

I've ensured that my spamassassin, perl-Net-DNS and
per-IO-Socket-INET6 packages are all from the CentOS
repo, so is it just a crap shoot to find what is causing
this?  I'd expect the error message to be more helpful
than that...

Recap on my versions:
