That's true that it's relatively straightforward to set up a ppm repository, and build ppm packages with the right tools. A minor point, for archival purposes:

Certain modules could be automatically declined like PDL, which requires a Fortran compiler, or modules that require special licensing like DBD::Oracle or DBD::DB2.
  • PDL, as well as PGPLOT, which PDL can use, are available as ppm packages, thanks to the heroic efforts of syphilis.
  • ActiveState has worked out the licensing arrangements in order to supply a DBD-Oracle ppm package.
  • IBM gave permission for us to provide a DBD-DB2 ppm package.
