[sf-perl] [poll] App::Perlbrew

I use it extensively. At home I use it because OS X's Perl is out of date, and at work I use it to isolate my application from OS dependencies. The work project uses a Git submodule containing a full build of Perl and all of the CPAN dependencies for the application; there's a make target to build a new Perl using Perlbrew in this submodule. Shipped builds contain this entire subtree along with the actual application. Archived and compressed it comes out to no more than 10 MB. Works pretty well.
