Since /usr/lib/perl5/5.6 is not in @INC, I believe that
architecture-independent modules built against the previous perl-5.6
need to be rebuilt as soon as possible. Have I missed something? I know
that statnews currently doesn't work because libmime-perl installs
MIME::Words into that directory.
I take it it wasn't possible to fit the old arch-independent paths into
@INC? Luckily, nothing critical on my system seems to depend on modules
