Rt 3.4.5, while make fixdeps

Hi List,
I am installing RT 3.4.5 on FC4. After running make testdeps:
[OUTPUT]
/usr/bin/perl ./sbin/rt-test-dependencies --verbose --with-mysql
perl:
5.8.3…found


CORE dependencies:
Digest::base …found
Digest::MD5 2.27…found


Text::Quoted 1.3…found
Tree::Simple 1.04…MISSING
Scalar::Util …found

SOMETHING WAS MISSING!
[/OUTPUT]

Now after running make fixdeps:

[OUTPUT]
/usr/bin/perl ./sbin/rt-test-dependencies --verbose --install --with-mysql
perl:
5.8.3…found


Text::Quoted 1.3…found
Tree::Simple 1.04…MISSING
CPAN: Storable loaded ok
Going to read /var/cache/.cpan/Metadata
Database was generated on Wed, 18 Jan 2006 21:11:52 GMT
Tree::Simple is up to date.
Scalar::Util …found
Module::Versions::Report …found
Cache::Simple::TimedExpiry …found
XML::Simple …found

I had a similar problem to this. It turned out that Tree::Simple was
requiring weak references in Perl objects, and the version of Perl on my
system (RHEL 4 with some maintenance patches) didn’t have it. RedHat had
enabled weak references in the stock Perl distributed with RHEL 4, but
in a “routine” security patch to the Perl RPM, they had changed the
compile options to disable weak references. That killed Tree::Simple.
It turns out that what RT is complaining about is not that Tree::Simple
is missing, but that it is inoperative.

I’m not a Perl wizard, so I invite others to elaborate on this… What I did
to fix the problem was to physically remove Tree::Simple from my site_perl
directory tree, then reinstall it. This happened twice to me before I wised
up and disabled RedHat’s up2date utility from even TOUCHING anything Perl-ish.
The environment is too fragile and closely-coupled for automated updates.
I also found that I had to reinstall DBIx::SearchBuilder the second time this
happened, so it may be best to reinstall both.

For further reference about the weak references problem:

Hope this helps.
