"When a CPAN module I want to use does not have a FreeBSD port, I'll
try to make one. It's usually easy, since it's mostly boilerplate..."
First, I think it is really cool that you do that. I think it is awesome and
you should be congratulated. Now that you mention it there are some modules
that will not install on Win32 under Strawberry Perl that I might consider
doing the same to.
Regarding the problem, didn't you just shoot an e-mail to Michael Schwern
asking him if he did anything strange when posting to CPAN?
