Well the cleanest solution is to port the app to use the current CPAN versions
of the modules, starting by writing a test suite which works with the original
modules.  Fiddly and boring I know but probably correct and you will thank
yourself in the long run and be able to sleep at night.  You will also
certainly correct a pile of longstanding bugs as a side effect.

Or a lazy solution would be to bundle the original modules up using "par".

and maybe Apache::PAR would work.
