glibmm24-devel provides perl(Util) EQ 0 1.00
fedora-ds-base provides perl(Util)

Hmm, ok. So the gtkmm stack uses a Perl-based code generation system (the C++
source code is generated automatically from source templates).
It turns out that the automake setup for some reasons installs the Perl
autogeneration scripts under /usr/lib/glibmm-2.4/proc, and the perl files are
picked up automatically by RPM, and therefore pollute the RPM perl namespace.
I don't know why the perl files are installed since they're not really meant to
be used by developers. I'll check upstream.
I'll just rm -r /usr/lib/glibmm-2.4/proc after installation and push an update.
"They are useful for creating other *mm projects, yes. But it's not awful
if they are not installed by the distro."
If someone requests it, I'll package them separately with an extra namespace.
Removed for now.
