Perl Dependency Frustration on Latest Stable

Hi all

I've been trying to install the latest stable this morning on a Redhat 9

I get:
Now to install MailScanner itself.

error: Failed dependencies:
        perl(HTML::Entities) is needed by mailscanner-4.44.6-1
        perl(HTML::Parser) is needed by mailscanner-4.44.6-1
        perl(HTML::TokeParser) is needed by mailscanner-4.44.6-1

At which point the installer dies

The required modules are installed. I reinstalled them via CPAN and no
change. I reinstalled them manually - no change

Any ideas?
