I also had to recompile Perl for Fedora 2.  Here's the steps for Fedora 
2.  A few minor changes will be needed for Fedora 3.


rpm -ivh perl-5.8.3-18.src.rpm

cd /usr/src/redhat/SPECS

 vi perl.spec

Find the line that says "%define threading 1" and change it to "%define 
threading  0".

yum install db4-devel

rpmbuild -ba perl.spec

rpm --force -ivh  /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/perl*.rpm
