A reference to which?

I don't know how CPAN handles it but note that the assp port in FreeBSD just
depends on Mail::SPF, no reference to Mail::SPF::Query . That would
suggest someone thinks that's all that's needed.

grepping through the 188.8.131.52 files, I don't see any actual use of
Mail::SPF::Query, just one reference to it in ASSP/assp.pl (for DebugSPF).
Unless there's something well hidden, Mail::SPF should be fine...
