Yep.  I need to retest a virgin install (simple thanx to VirtualBox),
but the last time I tried on 1.2.x (which was a while ago) I had a few
dependencies still to fix from CPAN.  Will patch and submit next time
I do this.  1.3 seems a bit better in this department.

Hmm.  And you would care about this because ...???  Distro packages
will be older, but will still probably work.  Personally, I'd rather
have my modules from CPAN.  But then, I prefer my bread fresh too.
