That's because of the exim. Do a 'yum install ssmtp' then a 'yum
remove exim' and most of that problem goes away. the auto depsolving
for '/usr/bin/sendmail' get exim by default because its the shortest
name and comes first. exim depends on perl. ssmtp is a very small 50k
dep that gives cronie what it wants.
