If you stay within the typically installed and maintained modules for sites that use CPanel and bundle everything else in the libraries directory of your project (with appropriate adjustments to your use paths, of course) you should be fine for most other servers your target audience will use. Either they'll be on a CPanel or Plesk managed server or they'll have arrangements to do things themselves or to hire it done.

Typically, but not always, I distribute to my clients in two separate archive files. One is the project proper. The other is the dependencies, precompiled with a compatible perl, cc, processor, and OS if they are not pure-perl modules. I keep them separate from the system perl and usually separate from each other in case the projects depend on different interfaces in different versions of the same module. Deployment consists of uploading and extracting the project, and if that doesn't work, uploading and extracting the dependencies in the same folder. If I need anything outside the web root, I make sure the relative paths are saved in the archives.

If your customer are running something like perl 5.6.2 on Irix 6, then they'll know how to do all their own module installations. At least they should, or have access to someone who does.

    [haukex]: I figured that POD tests make sense, but only as author tests
    [choroba]: I mean, the slides are, but not the makefile with scripts to create them
    [Corion]: haukex: I've only now arrived at that revelation ;)
    [Corion]: choroba: I use spod5, which also has that support, and also implements its own kinda-make stuff
    [haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
    [haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
    [Corion]: haukex: Yes, but if it's only supposed to run on my machine, I can be far more liberal with how I extract the code etc.
    [Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
    [Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
    [haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
