BSDPAN versus CPAN

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?
