Incorrect (as in old) version numbers, missing prerequisites somewhere 
in the chain, dependency upon modules which aren't common that don't 
build particularly cleanly/correctly on any of the 3 OSes I have tried 
(Linux, Solaris, Windows), ...

Cat-in-a-box and related efforts are good.  I have a badly out of date 
make file to handle this, going to give that up in favor of mirroring 
CPAN locally, and just building what is needed.

FWIW, anything like DBIx::* that doesn't have an explicit dependence 
upon DBI, just as an example, not pointing a finger at DBIx::* or DBI, 
has a tendency to break, spectacularly, during testing.

Huge dependency radii/trees are not fun.
