|Summary||0002434: Scalar::Util missing XS|
|Description||It appears that the perl RPM does not include the XS version of Scalar::Util.|
Various modules die when attempting to use dualvar() from the Scalar::Util module, which is only available in the XS-compiled version of the module.
Last night my CentOS 3.9 was auto-updated by Yum:
Nov 06 06:06:15 Updated: perl-CPAN 2:1.61-97.EL3.i386
Nov 06 06:06:15 Updated: perl 2:5.8.0-97.EL3.i386
Nov 06 06:06:15 Updated: perl-CGI 2:2.89-97.EL3.i386
Nov 06 06:06:15 Updated: perl-suidperl 2:5.8.0-97.EL3.i386
Immediately after, the site starting failing in calls to Compress::Zlib due to a
missing dualvar function. Downgrading to previous perl did not help.
However, once I went into CPAN and manually rebuilt Scalar::Util with the compiled XS extensions, everything starting working normally.

More discussion of this issue:
if you had done that in the past too (rebuild Scalar::Util) then that would have been upgraded with the new version of perl.
In the bug that you mention in your link, CentOS exhibits the same behavior as RHEL (which is our goal).
Only if we exhibit a different behavior would we change our build.
My most recent yum update has caused this problem on CentOS 4.6...
