Subject: [gentoo-perl] [Patch] up2date-ng and CPAN package list

Hello,

Recently I noticed that dev-perl/Net-SSLeay is behind one release, and
wondered why it wasn't showing up in the weekly "Perl ebuilds needing
updates" emails.

Sometimes the CPAN package list contains lines like:

[...]
Net::SSLeay                        1.30  F/FL/FLORA/Net_SSLeay.pm-1.30.tar.gz
Net::SSLeay::Handle                0.61  S/SA/SAMPO/Net_SSLeay.pm-1.25.tar.gz
[...]

When up2date-ng iterates through the list, it assumes it will see the
highest version number last.  Attached is a patch to take into account
the rather odd way CPAN indexes packages...
