I just tried to uninstall these 2 packages and got

rpm -e perl-ExtUtils-ParseXS perl-Test-Harness
error: Failed dependencies:
        perl(ExtUtils::ParseXS) is needed by (installed) perl-Module-Install-0.77-1.fc10.noarch
        perl(ExtUtils::ParseXS) >= 1.02 is needed by (installed) perl-Module-Build-1:0.3200-68.fc10.x86_64
        perl(ExtUtils::ParseXS) is needed by (installed) perl-devel-4:5.10.0-68.fc10.x86_64
        perl(Test::Harness) is needed by (installed) mod_perl-devel-2.0.4-7.x86_64

And while trying to run down the dependancy list for perl-Module-Build I ran into a whole lot of stuff.

So.... I would assume that those packages are probably needed for any healthy perl build system and are probably installed by default.
