Uninstall perl-Perl-RPM

run up2date

Install a newer version of perl-Perl-RPM (or rebuild the src rpm and install 

The problem is that perl-Perl-RPM is explicitly dependent upon rpm version 
(as it should be; the RPM API changes w/ every release), so it needs to be 
upgraded when RPM is upgraded.  Since it's not a Red Hat distributed 
application, up2date can't take care of upgrading it for you....
