Thank you for confirming this.  I just took a closer look and it appears
that the problem with syslinux-perl is a bug in Owl-current.  We did not
run into it because the syslinux-perl subpackage is not included in our
installorder.conf.  So please just don't install this subpackage for
now.  If you use "make installworld" instead of the manual "rpm -Uvh
~build/RPMS/*.rpm", that should just work (not trying to install this
problematic subpackage).

Please let us know if you run into any other issues.

Thanks again,
