Wow, I am surprised that rt didn't do the build for a 5.6.1 perl, after CPAN 
rebuilt it.

Maybe the answer is to completely nuke rt, and re-install it.  Now that all of 
the requirements are met, it might see perl 5.6.1 from start to finish.

Save your config.pm, and do a re-install?

Another solution (which I don't like) is to figure out where Apache/DBI.pm is 
at in the 5.6.1 tree out there, and put it in the 5.6.0 tree in the same
