I have just released the latest beta 4.66.3.
I have updated the MIME-tools to the latest 5.425, to try to solve all 
your problems with yum repositories.
Along with this, there is another dependency, perl-IO, and updates to 
some others, including perl-File-Temp.

Installing it on a few other systems is showing up problems with not 
forcing the installation of perl-File-Temp. On RedHat 5 systems, I 
carefully don't force installation of any modules, as people had 
previously requested that. Inevitably, that has come back to bite me. 
Without installing the latest perl-File-Temp, the requirements of 
perl-MIME-tools are not met.

So please try to install this version on your system, and let me know if 
the installation succeeds or not. If it does not succeed, do this to 
1)   Use 'perl -MCPAN -e install File::Temp'
2)   Re-run ./

Then you should have a working system again.

All advice on how to solve the problems with File::Temp are much 
appreciated. Should I just go back to forcing installation of modules on 
RedHat 5 again?

And does it work on SuSE Linux as well?
