If you have a rig capable of installing both XS and non-XS CPAN modules
at all, Catalyst -should- install cleanly.

If it doesn't, we want to hear about it. Or at least I do.

I was highly amused to see that Mark Stosberg (CGI::App maint) recently
complained that Catalyst had far too many dependencies and he didn't like
that ... having counted them against a SUCCESSFUL INSTALL.
