Haven't tried cpan2deb but cpan2rpm does not work with many CPAN modules and also it doesn't deal with dependencies the way CPAN does. So I guess they aren't as magical as you think.

    Sure they are, why complicate things?

    simple way, first build 500 perl modules and all required dependencies, and then make an rpm -- there you go

    build it the way the debian release managers build it, one module at a time, until you have a chain of dependencies

    It doesn't get more magical than this
