I've already pointed several times in that direction. At least there should
be an installer option to skip all the perl modules alltogether. Or, maybe
it's there now, I didn't check. What I do when installing a new MS is to
install *only* the mailscanner*.rpm and the tnef and some other rpm from
inside the tarball. *Not* all the perl*src.rpms. They are simply not needed
on Red Hat platforms. All are either part of the distribution or even part
of the distributed Perl or can be obtained from rpmforge.
That makes the installation also *much* faster :-)
AFAIK, Jules tries to make the installation "fool-proof", so you do not
need to think about any requirements before installing MS. That obviously
conflicts with an already well-equipped OS.
