My development machines are different - just seems like a lot of dependancies for perl modules - I assume perl is alos used (elsewhere) for production environments.
Last time I worked with CPAN to any extent was 8 to 10 years ago - and it "worked" better on UNIX, read AIX. As I want to test on AIX I need to figure out what these dependencies are, and/or if force install will hurt the testing process.

In short, working on it - my problem. Suggestions always welcome. :)

Like this in the future (or as an attachment - although I assumed (my
error) you would cut/paste into a "notebook" - which is how I clear up
formats I cannot read).

In any case I hope you know what you need to know - I was not sure which
one was needing testing.

Unfortunately I am still fighting with perl, and getting extra mods
installed. AIX 6.1 TYL7 does know have the ability to have a TAP
interface, so that has taken care of a few modules - but I am really
wondering how well perl mods have been tested for portability if they
MUST have things that you might not want to have active in a secured
production environment. Just my gut feeling - no comment on the testing
well, thats what your effort with building RPMs is good for: normally the development machine is another one than the production machine ;-)
