Hmmm...  Took another look at the test box install log and noticed that once the
upgrade happened, there was a failure at perl-Storable.

t/weak................Weak references are not implemented in the version of perl
at t/weak.t line 28
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at t/weak.t line 33.          
        Test returned status 255 (wstat 65280, 0xff00)

t/weak.t     255 65280    ??   ??       %  ??
1 test skipped.        
Failed 1/32 test scripts, 96.88% okay. 0/2190 subtests failed, 100.00% okay.
make: *** [test_dynamic] Error 255
error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.96991 (%build)

But I guess it's not a big deal since perl-Storable was previously installed
already.  Also, cpan was borked and would not update itself (install
Bundle::CPAN).  But both items were resolved when I reinstalled
