I'm trying to install some software (rt -- I wish it were in pkgsrc!) 
that requires a large number of perl modules.  Some of the modules it 
thinks are missing were easy to find in pkgsrc; others are harder.  (I 
don't think I know enough to turn rt into a package; I certain can't if 
I don't know how to find those modules.)

rt itself can grab modules from cpan, but I'm nervous about how that 
would interact with pkgsrc.  Besides, for all the obvious reasons I'd 
rather use pkgsrc to install things.
