The (alpha) source code is available from the CPAN-Search-Lite project on SourceForge. This doesn't have all the great features of search.cpan.org, but it may be useful to those interested in setting up a minimal searchable CPAN database - it can even be used on a box without a local CPAN mirror (albeit without the capabilities of extracting module and package docs).
The documentation for setting things up is minimal - please contact me, or use the SourceForge mailing list, if you have questions, run into some bugs, or have suggestions." Mmm, code. Thanks, Randy!
