Maybe there is a complex regex in the kam rules that is playing havoc on your
perl version in CentOS 3. I remember having issues when I ran perl 5.8.0 with
some regex processing.

It might also explain why so many of the perl modules didn't compile.

Might be time to think about migrating the servers to something newer.
