Inspired by some traffic on module-authors@ and similar, I'm trying to use cpan2dist to create debian packages of CPAN modules, with easy and no fuss.
It's... a slog. Apparently CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb assumes you'd only ever want to use the system perl. I'm working through the issues but it's an unhappy place to be right now. I figure I'm a pile more hours out from being able to use this.
BTW, http://rassie.org/archives/tag/cpan2dist is nifty to give the right 90 seconds worth of info that the manual doesn't.
