Description of problem:
After updating both Apache RHSA-2003:243-01 and Perl RHSA-2003:256-01 the 
following occurs when httpd is restarted:

[root@138 /root]# service httpd restart
Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
Starting httpd: [Mon Sep 22 15:44:54 2003] [error] Can't locate strict.pm in

Disabling the perl module in httpd.conf allows Apached to start normally.

Comment 1 Henry Holtzman 2003-09-23 23:23:51 EDT
The problem is that the mod_perl package for RH 7.1 is built against perl 
5.6.0, and RHSA-2003:256 replaces perl 5.6.0 with perl 5.6.1 on RH 7.1.

Redhat should either backport the patches to Perl 5.6.0 and release this for 
RH 7.1 (pulling the 5.6.1 Perl package), or it should provide an updated 
mod_perl for RH 7.1 that is built against perl 5.6.1
