Since then however perl has not broken ABI (?), so it seems that we

FC4 packages from being installed on FC5.

Hmm, FC4 still continues to have symlinks going back to 5.8.0 (RHEL3).
I think this is a mistake. We haven't maintained ABI compat that long
Dirs should have been removed when they are known to be incompatible.
