XML::RSS/XML::Parser (rt 3.8.8 install)

I’ve run into a problem while trying to do an install of RT 3.8.8

CentOS 5.x guest in a Linux-Vserver host. Perl 5.10.1 added from the
tarball as a /usr/local/ install.

Everything goes mostly smooth until trying to satisfy the Mason
requirements.

I’m still looking but here is where I’m at right now. Well actually as
of yesterday but I’ve been practicing “Insanity” (trying the same thing,
the same way, and expecting the results to be different.)

XML::RSS requires XML::Parser and the install using cpan or ‘perl
Makefile.PL; make; etc.’ throws an error.

Should I force or is there something I’m not seeing/doing?

Looks like the regression in libexpat introduced when fixing
CVE-2009-3560. A better fix was released later that didn’t have this
problem.
