Kang Kai - Aug. 31, 2012, 10 a.m.
perl module Class::ISA is needed by LSB 4.1 perl test, so add it.
When LSB 5.0 release, it will be deprecated. But we need it now.

[Yocto #3030]

+SUMMARY = "Perl module for reporting the search path for a class's ISA tree"
+DESCRIPTION = "Suppose you have a class (like Food::Fish::Fishstick) that is derived, \
+via its @ISA, from one or more superclasses (as Food::Fish::Fishstick is from Food::Fish,\
+Life::Fungus, and Chemicals), and some of those superclasses may themselves each be\
+derived, via its @ISA, from one or more superclasses (as above).\
+When, then, you call a method in that class ($fishstick->calories), Perl first searches\
+there for that method, but if it's not there, it goes searching in its superclasses, and\
+so on, in a depth-first (or maybe "height-first" is the word) search. In the above example,\
+it'd first look in Food::Fish, then Food, then Matter, then Life::Fungus, then Life, then\
+This library, Class::ISA, provides functions that return that list -- the list\
+(in order) of names of classes Perl would search to find a method, with no duplicates."
