Sounds like the install script failed trying to build an RPM of one of 
the Perl modules, possibly Compress::Zlib.  You might be able to get it 
working by doing

	yum install perl-Compress-Zlib

and then starting MailScanner again.

It would help a lot if you posted the build output just before the 
failure.  Then we might be able to tell you why it was failing and how 
to get around the failure.
