Description of problem:
if certaion packages are not updated perl 5.6.1 will break these packages
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.upgrade perl 5.6.1
2. DONT upgrade mod_perl
3. restart apache
4. apache does not work
Actual Results: if you have apache configured with mod_perl then mod_perl will
not work as it wil look for file in the old 5.6.0 directory not the 5.6.1.
There should be some indication that if you are installing perl 5.6.1 and you
have mod_perl then it should warr a user. If they do not have mod_perl then it
should install as normal. Else the message that I got about upgrading to perl
should have included that info.
Workaround is just to upgrade mod_perl when upgrading to perl 5.6.1
There's not much choice; you have to upgrade mod_perl when you upgrade perl.
They were errata'd together, so this should make sense. Not much we can do from
a packaging perspective.
