           Summary: perl.ppc64 @INC problem, perl.ppc conflicts
           Product: Fedora Core
           Version: fc6
          Platform: ppc64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: medium
          Priority: medium
         Component: perl
        AssignedTo: rnorwood at redhat.com

Description of problem:

 perl.ppc64's @INC doesn't include paths where most perl binary packages are,
perl-BerkeleyDB.ppc for example. 

[root at mybox~]# locate BerkeleyDB.pm

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

 current (from base)

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install perl.ppc, perl.ppc64, install perl-BerkelyDB.
2. Then perl -e 'use BerkeleyDB; exit;'
3. There is no step 3... heh, there is no step 3.
Actual results:

Can't locate BerkeleyDB.pm in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.6 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.5
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.7
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.6 /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5
/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl /usr/lib64/perl5/5.8.8/ppc64-linux-thread-multi
/usr/lib/perl5/5.8.8) at /usr/sbin/postgrey line 14.

Expected results:

Successful compilation and exit without error.

Additional info:

The workaround was to yum erase perl.ppc64, fetch the perl.ppc rpm and rpm -i
--replacepkgs --replacefiles (because they both dump perl in /usr/bin/perl, so
removing the perl.ppc64 still left the 64 bit binary).
