One approach I've seen is someone builds a virtual machine with a bunch of
perl modules and other bits then leaves that image on a shared disk. There
is a tendency for it to diverge but usually it's not that bad, and as a way
to get a number of people working right away (esp new hires) is hard to
beat. Any non-trivial project is usually more than just perl modules:
Apache/lighttpd/etc, database, EC2, redis, etc Puppet is useful but a
learning curve.

(Nothing to stop combining this with local::lib etc)
