Lucky for me you chose a bad case example ;) LWP is bundled upstream in
libwww-perl-*.tar.gz, so when the current g-cpan goes to resolve it, it
sees libwww-perl and marks it as an existing dep.

Some better examples would be:

gtk2-fu (odd, since dams is both maintainer of the ebuild and author of
the module)
glib-perl
XML-Sablot(ron)
Parse-Yapp
Locale-gettext
CPAN-Mini-Phalanx
Term-ANSIColor

And all of this is of course something I didn't consider when we put out
the last release of g-cpan. Plus (like there's not enough fun), it seems
to be lacking in viable feedback on core installed modules versus
needing an ebuild, IO::File being the best (and ok, pretty much only
that I am aware of) example of that.

And don't get me started on the whole PathTools thing...
