[Mimedefang] Installing mimedefang to SLES: perl modules

I want to install mimedefang to SuSE Enterprise Server. Mimedfang
requires cpan module MIME::Base64 and at least version 3.03.
Unfortunately SLES standard perl contains already MIME::Base64 module,
version 2.21. So what is most correct way to upgrade MIME::Base64 module?
I don't want to overwrite the old Base64.pm with new one, I don't want
to break rpm package. And next time, when perl package would be updated
(because of some bugs), the MIME::Base64 module would be downgraded.
I think myself, that I'll make the rpm package from newer MIME::Base64
module (with cpan2rpm or perl2rpm), install it into the vendor_perl
directory structure and run mimedefang with option
-I/usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.3/i586-linux-thread-multi. In this way
modules will be searched from vendor_perl directory at first. And perl
rpm files remain as is.
What do you mean?
