CentOS perl issues

I like to use rpmforge because of updated (from CentOS5 repos)
spamassassin and clamav and am quite happy to update manually. With the
repo turned off this works:
yum --enablerepo=rpmforge -y install clamav spamassassin
Of course you need to update the perl module with something like
cpan Mail::SpamAssassin && sa-update
There's probably a way to tell yum to update only these packages from
rpmforge automatically but I have bothered with that. It does annoy me
that the rpmforge and centos repos clash on perl but meh - what can you
do and would you bother?
