have managed to find every perl module I've ever needed, as an RPM,
except for one that maRBL wanted - Net::RBLClient. I couldn't find
that one packaged anywhere, so I built it, noted what it installed
(very little) and whent on my way. If I run across it packaged, later,
I'll manually remove it and install the package, as I, too, like to
have a 100% RPM-based system. But I'm not going to let it stop me from
using a good tool. :)
