We recommend using an isolated perl (that is, not the system perl) for
RT.  This keeps RT's deps separate from the system's and ensures neither
break when updates are applied.  This is especially true on CentOS and
RHEL which package certain Perl libraries with features removed, thus
breaking RT.  It's really straightforward to get an isolated perl via
perlbrew (http://perlbrew.pl) these days, and combined with cpanm
(http://cpanmin.us) you can install the RT deps quickly and easily.
