Just FYI,

I contacted sunnavy (one of the Shripwright developers) and this is
what he said:

"I found the archive( PerlMagick ) has an interesting files format, which
shipwright didn't handle before.

I just released 2.4.25 to fix this, which will show up in cpan soon.
in case you are hurry, here it is: http://goo.gl/6Jtzz"

Just tested 2.4.25 and shripwright now imported all of the
dependencies for my cat app correctly.

I'm now building my ship :) and will get into testing the catalyst app
running from the vessel soon.
