[Net-z3950] Installing Net::Z3950

Much of that stuff seems to be related to kerberos authentication.  Maybe 
Fedora automatically inserts kerberos into any software that accesses its 
networking facilities.    There's a thread concerning this missing Fedora 
library on Red Hat's web site which might be of use:
It suggests a link to an older version of the lib which seems to work.  If 
you FC2 was an upgrade you might have it.

If you can't solve it in any other way,  instead of installing Z3950 using 
the CPAN module, which has to do everything by the book, you might try 
downloading the individual modules yourself and configuring them 
manually--examine the makfiles and see if you can successfully delete the 
kereberos libraries.  Probably a long shot, since the networkng might just 
demand it.

UPDATE:  I just found a copy on a Red Hat 8 and will send it to you separately.
