Is this "a bit similar" to having a CPAN mirror on my computer?

Kinda :)

CPAN is a source repository, with citrus/cava you'd be distributing binaries

Its like creating your own CitrusPerl or CavaPackager or Strawberryperl or ActivePerl

one monkey loads up all the modules and dlls required and creates an .exe users can install and use (cavapackager)

Or one monkey loads up all the modules and development tools and creates a perl his fellow developers can download and use (citrusperl -- different audience)

You need a special license to redistribute ActivePerl binaries, but thats free with citrus/strawberry

CavaPackager is IMHO more polished than PAR/PAR::Packer, and unlike Strawberryperl, Citrusperl targers linux and mac osx too

Pinto OTOH is like having your own curated CPAN mirror -- if you're working with a team, dealing with multiple platforms, compiling everything from source can make sense, it can even have "licensing" advantages
