Having the same problem I wanted to try the Captcha method.  I was very
happy to find that a wonderful Captcha coretag is part of the 5.5
development release.  Having 5.4 I copied the tag code into a usertag,
made some appropriate changes (coretag vs. usertag), added the necessary
Perl modules, and was off and running in just a few hours.  We have had
no spam since I added that about a month ago!
