Yes ... This week's upgrade to Perl 5.10 should have broken the
dependency for ocaml-perl4caml.  I'll rebuild it anyway and add a
dependency.  Not sure whether to use MODULE_COMPAT:

Requires: perl(:MODULE_COMPAT_%(eval "`%{__perl} -V:version`"; echo $version))

or just the straight installed version of perl.  Probably the latter
is better.

It shouldn't download any filelists ...

virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.
