The list is including some EL4 packages, so there may be some false

perl-Text-vFile-asData-utils is broken in EL5 anyway, I'll fix it.

Just a note, I find all the repoclosures run posted in the last weeks to
be very useful. I think having them run in an automated way would help
raise the EPEL quality greatly.
