Perl Modules

I'm installing MailScanner on CentOS5 (I usually live in FreeBSD land, 
so it's a bit trippy for me at the moment!) and had a question.

I seem to recall reading something about particular versions of perl 
modules being needed.  If I install MailScanner from the RPM package on 
the site, and then do a yum update, am I going to break 

For instance, yum currently wants to upgrade:
 perl-Archive-Zip        noarch     1.16-1.2.1       base              138 k
 perl-Compress-Zlib      i386       1.42-1.fc6       base               52 k
 perl-HTML-Tagset        noarch     3.10-2.1.1       base               15 k
 perl-TimeDate           noarch     1:1.16-5.el5     base               32 k

I'd just prefer not to stomp all over the work I'm doing...
