If you're using the OS vendor's outdated version of perl for your own perl programs, then that would be a great idea.

Personally, I'll stick to using CPAN installed modules compiled against a modern version of perl.

    Or one could create their own RPMs, but that is a lot of work when you hit a modules that has a lot of dependencies. It would be great if CPAN would generate the RPM's as well as working out and installing the dependencies.

      If only there was some kind of magical cpan2rpm/cpan2deb... cavapackager ... Re: dependency error isntalling rpm package

        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.
