in reply to Perl and OpenWrt - where to the communities intersect?

This seems to me another case of a misguided vendor packaging some modules from the Perl core as separate packages and not including them in the "Perl" distribution, most likely to save disk space. I think this is misguided and maybe even a violation of the Artistic License (as you can only name "Perl" what really is "Perl", and leaving out things makes "Perl" "not Perl" IMO), but that doesn't solve your problem of the package manager not pulling in all packages you want/need.

I think you can get a full module dependency graph via CPANdeps (at, and maybe even as a data structure, and then you can either fetch all those modules via the OpenWRT package manager or use that data to smarten up their dependency chain about the core modules.
