    I just do it the simple way you describe, though I sort the modules into dependency order manually. This also allows me to patch modules before building, e.g. to fix broken Makefile.PL behaviour. Most interactivity can be suppressed using perl Makefile.PL </dev/null. For duplicate installations we just sync the installation tree onto the other target machines.

    I don't have many different or fast-changing installations to manage, though.

    • Depressingly this is the same solution I use, I've tried other solutions. Automated install scripts, PAR, a couple of other things. None really worked as well.
