I was doing basically this (via the cpan2rpm method Alessio mentioned
above) but trying to reconcile the differences between the FC/RHEL
world and Solaris made my head spin, and I didn't have the time to
write cpan2pkg.  I need a process as automated as possible (cd
/app/src; make world), and coupling this with VMware/Xen/Sol zones/etc
makes for some interesting possibilities.

Most big-time apps that need Perl ship a bundled interpreter and
modules anyway to simplify support.  The nice side-effect of this is
it puts the Catalyst module-dependency maze completely in the
deveoper's lap.
