I'm getting the same error.
Comment 2 Tim Powers 2001-08-15 15:08:21 EDT
If you get this package you should be fine:


It lists /usr/bansaitools/perl in some of the docs, but it doesn't need it to run.

If you have perl etc. installed, it's probably safe to use --nodeps.

Comment 3 Nicolas Mailhot 2001-08-17 10:28:00 EDT
1. --nodeps is butt ugly
2. most of the files in this rpm have
#!/usr/bonsaitools/bin/perl -w in their headers
3. I think their's also a sendmail binary path problem in some files, but maybe
that's because I use the powertools postfix rpm

Fixed in the package whihc was released yesterday as an errata.
