Do one or the other. If you like RPMs, then download the SA tarball
from the website and rpmbuild it to get an RPM. That's what I do. But
don't install or try to upgrade SA from CPAN if you've installed it
from an RPM.

At this point, if you've partly installed SA from CPAN, you will
probably want to uninstall the older SA RPM and then reinstall SA from
CPAN to make sure everything's there.

Note: even if you install SA from an RPM, you will still need to
install or upgrade some of the *supporting* modules (like Net:NS)
from CPAN.
