 Problem with two versions of Perl installed


I am using Redhat 7.1 and one day I connected to the CPAN and install the
Bundle::CPAN, CGI, DBI and other softwares.  Now my Perl was upgraded from
the Redhat's Perl 5.6.0 to Perl 5.6.1 after installing the Bundle::CPAN.
I tried rpm -e, but it complaint that a lot of softwares are dependent on
Perl.  How do I safely remove Perl 5.6.0 and all reference to it?  And make
all softwares pointing to Perl 5.6.1?

That's why people don't like the RPM system (and RedHate).  It's always
better to install stuff oneself to avoid these situations.

I would say to make a symbolic link, or copy over the binary (since it's not
going to be used anymore), but I don't understand the RPM system (and why
people use it).
