I would say yes when I look into the upstream CPAN module:

I don't know the SIPServer.pm module, it doesn't seem to be in the
OpenCSW repository. Do you have an upstream URL for me? It may need
another CPAN module which just has a similar name. We should see
to get the SIP-Server modules into the repository.

This issue was the result of a fix in Perl 5.8.8 we tried in the CSW  
The shipped 5.8.8 MakeMaker is too old for a lot of CPAN modules, so  
we tried
updating it in CSWperl. Unfortunately as we found out later that  
breaks other
CPAN modules. This ultimately lead to the major update to Perl 5.10.1  
to finally
fix this. However, updating to 5.10.1 means for you recompiling all  

Best regards
