[Chicago-talk] There's a CPAN module that exists under /by-author but not /by-module

I ended up adding "MASTER_SITE_SUBDIR= ../by-authors/id/E/EX/EXODIST"
to the port's Makefile. I did some grepping (not acking, sorry) and
found over 100 ports of CPAN modules that needed similar workarounds.

As for why bother with ports at all, first, I really like the ports
system, but it's also not just for my benefit. I'm definitely in the
build-my-own camp on my Ubuntu machine which would otherwise
officially still be running Perl 5.8.8. Never having warmed up to
apt-get and the whole Debian style of doing things is probably a
factor too.
