Interesting. I'll look into that. I regularly try out cpanm also.
I thought we only got problems with Module::Install and Module::Build cs. EUMM.

I could not repro this. I built HTTP::Status just fine. I'll think about it.

Sorry, too much manual work.
I rather prefer only one single dependency and update step than 150.
These are just the basics to get CPAN and CPAN::Reporter working,
the rest you can do by your own.
You''l only need such cygports deps (like Yaakov needs them) if you
requiring perl modules. There are not many.
