Hey all,

I'm under the understanding that it's somehow preferable to install perl 
modules via the ports system, rather than the straight off perl -MCPAN -e 
shell system I normally use.  Apparently the only advantage is this avoids 
the "no origin recorded" errors (although portupgrade can't handle BSDPAN 

On that note, is there any sort of CPAN equivalent that will, upon trying 
to build a module will try the ports tree first, and failing that, will 
function as a wraparound to the CPAN module?
