I suspect it is (most of those should be present as ebuilds already in portage at that). This all goes to one of the 2 underlying problems I have with how g-cpan currently detects dependancies - it doesn't note deps that are already installed, and it doesn't note versions of the deps. Instead it relies on cpan to notice the missing deps - but I'm not sure how this works if the module in question is using extutils::autoconfig and therefore sidestepping the cpan.pm detection (which I suspect happened to you in Catalyst). Oh, for time and time and time to work on this :) -- -----o()o--------------------------------------------- Michael Cummings | #gentoo-dev, #gentoo-perl Gentoo Perl Dev | on irc.freenode.net -----o()o---------------------------------------------
