Been a little out of sorts the last week, haven't been on irc at all really 
(sorry). The only way around this problem, really, is to either:
* Come up with a new way of determining dependancies (which I think is in 
order anyway given that other todo/wish item i added, making sure the 
dependancy is also the met by version). Currently we let cpan unpack the 
downloaded module and do a dry run to see what deps it complains about. It's 
ugly, nasty, but works in a sick, fatalistic way.
* Make module-build a dep for g-cpan.

To resum the problem, when cpan goes to try and build the module to see what 
deps are missing, if the module uses module-build then it craps out and tries 
to install module-build, but we have an ebuild for it, hence the ugly 
situation.

And all of this aside - g-cpan is still sexy and a millions times better than 
it used to be :)
