Building Packages for Perl Modules (closure)

A few weeks back I wrote about building packages from Perl modules, want to finish that up.

As I started to go through the process of downloading, untarring, configing, compiling and installing each Perl module or package I longed for an easier method so I reconsidered Pete's recommendation of using the CPAN module's shell. The shell makes it easy to lump all stages of the install into one.

Once the install was complete it became fairly straightforward to create the package using my alternate package building method.
