well...now i'm screwed. i left it to build last night (i figured the
build would work, even if the install didn't) and it screwed me.
these two packages
perl-base-5.6.0 base installation of Perl
perl-5.00503 Practical Extraction and Report Language
*don't* conflict, so they're both currently installed. and the
modules (what's the reason for them again?). the only thing *not*
installed is the meta pkg: perl-5.6.0nb3.
i can't go and delete the 5.00503 pkg now, 'cause that will toast the
5.6.0 installation. then again, maybe i should go and do it the
stupid way now...
