Yeah, that's what I mean. perl-5.10.0-5 was released over a year ago.
Surely it would be easier to keep these packages updated separately then
rebuilding perl over and over again?
If anyone needs newer packages, cpan is your friend. That's why included
all the vendor modules. To be able to update by yourself via cpan.
That only helps if I'm building a module for myself via CPAN. If I want
to create a redistributable package for a particular module, and
especially if I wanted to ITP it, I can't rely on others using CPAN just
to use or rebuild the package.
