I noticed a further problems:

On FC6 with a locally build perl*-14.1 (including my most recent
patches) in a local repo in addition to the FC's core+extras,

yum install 'perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker)'
fails:

# rpm -q --whatprovides 'perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker)'
no package provides perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker)

# yum install 'perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker)'
...
Nothing to do

# repoquery --whatprovides 'perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker)'
perl-4:5.8.8-10.i386
perl-devel-4:5.8.8-14.1.i386

# yum install perl-devel
...
Installed: perl-devel.i386 4:5.8.8-14.1


Seems to me as if yum can't properly handle this split.

May-be, it can't handle resolving a property (perl(ExtUtils::MakeMaker))
being provided by different packages perl rsp. perl-devel).
