MIME::Fast

Not surprisingly, I hate when stuff just does not work.

Trying to use MIME::Fast. To compile it (cpan install MIME::Fast) you need, supposedly, gmime 2.1.9 or higher. I can't get it to compile in any other version of gmime other than 2.1.9 (so old that there are no packages for it either for any version of Debian or Fedora Core 5). Compiling it (that exact version) makes MIME::Fast compile, but its tests only go well under Debian, not Fedora.

Ack.

Dear Lazyweb, do you know any good alternative for MIME::Fast? I mean, a Perl module that lets you easily interpret mail headers and body?
