I guess I should apologize for constantly harping about dependency creep
in gnulib.  No, gnulib is not the worst here.  By far!
I just did "yum install perl-Net-SSH-Perl.noarch" and it pulled 26
(that's right, twenty six!) packages for dependencies, including
perl-Math-GMP and perl-Math-Pari.
That's right, to interact with an ssh client, perl needs to do be able
to do number theoretical computer algebra system.
Can you believe it?!
