Just to nit pick, this behaviour does not indicate that RPM is broken.
RPM only checks to see if a module has been installed via RPM. It does
not, and should not, verify that anything has been installed any other
way, such as installing via CPAN or from source.

There are tools for creating RPMs from CPAN sources, such as cpan2rpm,
however unless you are running a network with a yum repo it's probably
overkill to bother doing that.

Yes, I have lost many brain cells creating such a yum repo ... grrrr
