Using perl (on fedora 16 x86_64), I got the following error message:

PDL::Graphics::PLplot needs to be recompiled against the newly  
installed PDL at /usr/lib64/perl5/ line 213.

I checked that the 2 packages perl-PDL and perl-PDL-Graphics-PLplot  
were properly
Then, I decided to recomplie both (rpmbuild --rebuild) and I got the error:

Extracting Core.xs (WITH bad value support)

Checking cpan, it looks like that I need another version of perl-PDL

But the question is how the availblae perl-PDL package has been compiled?

Any idea how I could fix this issue?
