Thank you for your bug report. I have fixed this bug in amanda-3.2.0-1.fc15. If you want to have this bug fixed in earlier version of Fedora, please reopen this bug. Closing Rawhide.

RPM provides/excludes mechanisms changed in rpm 4.9, introduced in Fedora 15, with the result that in Fedora 15 onwards, this bug has re-appeared.
Adding the following line alongside the existing filter should fix this without breaking compatibility with older distributions:
%global __provides_exclude ^perl\\(Math::BigInt\\)
