Method one:

# wait for a while..
i 1..(maximum number)
# It'd probably be worth setting "automatically follow prerequisites" to 
Always before starting though..

Method two:
Check out 'perllocal.pod' on your system (probably exists in more than 
one place if your system is like mine).
That contains a list of all the modules you've installed..
So you can parse that and then hit up cpanp with the list.
.. I'm pretty sure there's a CPAN tool to do it for you, but I'm afraid 
it escapes me right now.
