comment Disable, not unisntall, perl on Red Hat Enterprise 5.X?
Are you sure you are not confusing your request with disabling installed services (something common on UNIX)?

I don't see many differences between disabling and removing. When Perl is marked as a dependency, it means the package in question needs Perl (or whatever other dependency it has). When you remove the package, the system know that it misses required elements (and may remove the packages because the dependencies are not met). When "disabling" --it seems you mean "make not executable"-- the system in question does not know about your broken setup and takes the dependencies for granted: the application will probably crash or it will not function as intended (otherwise it's not a dependency).
