ideas: plenty; solutions: none atm. We get into a hairy area where
cpanplus is getting pulled in by one of the deps, probably via an
autopackage, and it has generated a bad config file for you (since it
wasn't installed interactively) which among other problems, points to
portage_tmp and /root/ for certain things. the quickest solution would
be to fire up cpanplus and reconfigure it (should have similar options
to cpan interactive in this regard) so that everything is pointing right
again, worst case hand munging the config file that got plopped into
vendor. I had thought about generating a good (patched) ebuild for
cpanplus, but time has been a bit short of late. i'm curious whether you
tried the bundle for catalyst or not - my last attempt at the everything
bundle was bullox since the bundle was missing a bundle file (silly
catalyst devs). I realize this isn't a clean solution, but it would at
least get you over the hump (hopefully).
