What I'd like to solicit feedback on here is: how are you managing your Perl dependencies in these build systems? Here's some goals I have:
* do not assume any non-core modules are installed on the build platform
* use specific version of modules in the built product - product is a Catalyst website for example (@inc or use lib)
* need to archive specific version of CPAN dependencies offline; this means we can recreate a product without an internet connection
* allow for the rebuild of dependencies when the build platform has changed; this is meant to address a platform change from 32bit to 64bit

Hi Nicholas,

On my personal projects I adhere to the Linux Filesystem Hierarchy Standard [0], modules go to /usr/local/ and lib search includes that path location as first option.
