Or even create packages (.deb, .rpm) which matches your deployment platform. i.e. use a well-understood format (perl/CPAN foo.tar.gz or package) as the deployment medium, since you know it works and there are probably additional tools to help you manage. You can normally set up your own package server (local apt source or local CPAN) too.
It's more work to set up initially, but it's nice to use the 'standard' tools for this sort of thing. There are fewer surprises and you get more fringe benefits.
