As Thomas said: I'd like to be surprised by the patch. I'm interested in
getting an answer what you're missing in devel/p5-IO-Async/Makefile or
similar package?

Please note that the dependency format

DEPENDS += {perl>=5.10.1,p5-CPAN>=1.9301}:../../devel/p5-CPAN

has been discussed and is discouraged.
