Adds bloaty perl dependency
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:00 EST
Description of problem:
Updated dhcp packages ship a '/usr/share/doc/dhcp-3.0.5/contrib' directory which adds bloaty perl dependencies. Since there are doc files only, they should be marked as non-executable.
| $ rpm -q --filerequire dhcp | grep perl
| /usr/share/doc/dhcp-3.0.5/contrib/3.0b1-lease-convert /usr/bin/perl perl >= 0:5.004 perl(strict)
| /usr/share/doc/dhcp-3.0.5/contrib/ms2isc/Registry.pm perl(strict)

FC-6. Post here if it works for you and then I'll move it to final updates.
Thanks for the report.
dhcp-3.0.5-4.fc6 has been pushed for fc6, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
