 We run Catalyst on Debian 3.1 with:
  Apache 2, 
  mod_perl 2.0 (release version), 
  postgresql 8. 

 Our Debs come from deb http://pkg-catalyst.alioth.debian.org/ binary/
 and other parts we need I roll up a deb for packages using the 
 dh-make-perl command. I keep a local Deb repository of all our own 
 packages and so far its worked very nicely. 

 We also roll our catalyst app into a deb package.  

 The result is that I can go apt-get install <inhouse-catalyst-app> and 
 all dependencies are fulfilled and away the app goes.
