in reply to perl 5.12: 32 bit to 64 bit transition

You can get ppm packlages for IO::Socket::SSL and Net::SSLeay from the sisyphusion repo.
Net::SMTP::SSL is pure perl (but I'll stick a ppm package on the sisyphusion repo anyway), and I couldn't quickly find Net::POP3::SSL on CPAN.
Did you mean Net::POP3::SSLWrapper ? (If so, it also is pure perl, but could also be added to the sisyphusion repo.)

Update: Added Net::SMTP::SSL and Net::POP3::SSLWrapper to sisyphusion repo.
