Description of problem:
$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/auto
file /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/auto is not owned by any package

$ tree /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/auto
`-- Mail
    |-- Internet
    |   |-- _prephdr.al
    |   |-- add_signature.al

3 directories, 14 files

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Everytime, see above.

Actual results:
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/auto is not owned by any package

Expected results:
Please either own /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/auto or move the package into 
another path (e.g. look to perl-DBI, it uses /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/

Additional info:
If needed, re-assign to the perl package in Fedora Core, but the problem really 
should be solved...
Comment 1 Robin Norwood 2006-11-02 22:12:32 EST
See also bug #73970 - the other 'auto' directories are handled by the perl rpm,
so I suspect that is the correct thing to do in this case.
Comment 2 Paul Howarth 2006-11-08 09:48:44 EST
Closing this as a duplicate of a new bug raised on the main perl package (as
agreed with Robin) since bugzilla doesn't allow reassignments of bugs between
products AFAIK (i.e. Extras and Core in this case).

The perl-DBI solution is not appropriate here because perl-DBI is an
architecture-specific package and hence uses different directories to
perl-MailTools, which is an architecture-independent package.
