Description Paul Howarth 2008-07-03 09:23:26 UTC
The original F-9 package of mapserver-perl had modules in "perl 5.8.8" paths,
which were not found by F-9's perl 5.10.0. The 5.0.3-1.fc9 update was built
against perl 5.10.0, which resolved the immediate problem.

There was a mass rebuild of perl packages late in the F-9 development period but
this package missed out on it, possibly because it is missing a perl version
"module compat" dependency and hence didn't have broken deps when perl was
upgraded to 5.10.0. Any package that includes perl modules in the
%{perl_vendorlib} or %{perl_vendorarch} directories (which are versioned by perl
version number) should have the following "Requires" tag added so that such
dependencies are properly flagged in future:

Requires: perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_%(eval "`%{__perl} -V:version`"; echo $version))
