Unhappy Digest::SHA1 and spamassassin-tools-2.63

I have been tearing my hair out over this.

I have Fedora Core 1, running on a old Celeron with 256Mb of RAM.

I have tried installing spamassassin-tools both from src.rpm to no avail.

I have succeeded in installing perl-Mail-Spamassassin and spamassassin (version 2.63-1)

BUT when I try to install spamassassin-tools (v 2.63-1) I get a dependency failure on

But Digest::SHA1 *is* installed. "cpan install Digest::SHA1" states that this module is up to date.

slocate -i Digest | grep perl | grep SHA1 reveals "Digest/SHA1" in at least three places of the perl module dir "vendor_perl", "site_perl" and I think even at the perl5/5.8.1 dir level.

So what can I do. Is rpm not finding it. Is there some kind of environment var I need. Maybe a path issue, I am not sure. But it is bugging the hell out of me. The Spamassassin INSTALL file states that Digest::SHA1 is nice but not a requirement, UNFORTUNATELY there are OTHER programs I am attempting to install that NEED "spamassassin-tools".

Is there a way via cpan to *maybe* uninstall the Digest::SHA1 and reinstall it??? I am not in the mood to uninstall perl.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
