Description of problem:
Please create a branch for moreutils in EPEL8.
Note however that updates are needed in EPEL generally, as well as rawhide, as we're behind upstream by a bit.

I tried to install on CentOS8 (centos:8 docker image) and got the following error.
[root@63c6800131dd /]# dnf -y install epel-release
[root@63c6800131dd /]# dnf -y install moreutils
Failed to set locale, defaulting to C

Problem: conflicting requests
- nothing provides perl(IPC::Run) needed by moreutils-0.63-1.el8.x86_64
- nothing provides perl-IPC-Run needed by moreutils-0.63-1.el8.x86_64
(try to add '--skip-broken' to skip uninstallable packages or '--nobest' to use not only best candidate packages)
Sorry. PowerTools repo seems to be required.
'dnf -y --enablerepo=PowerTools install moreutils' works fine.
Bear in mind please you're advocating subscribing to a new repo, for just one dependency, of just one "nice to have" package of a few kinda corner-case utils that very few people care or even know about. I'm prepping RHEL8 here for a closed environment, so that would require mirroring the entire repo, which would be hard to justify even for a critical package. No blame or anything, but please consider consequences of shuffling the deck before just saying "--enablerepo=PowerTools ... works fine". Thanks!
