That's interesting, but it only gives me the following output which is 
obviously wrong.

Compress::Raw::Zlib           2.008
Perl                          5.8.5

so I assume that the method being used is to only record those modules 
that have
been installed in the 'traditional' way, i.e. by being 'make'd whereas I 
know for a fact
that some modules have been 'installed' by copying from another 
identical build machine.

Module::Finder seems to offer the most possibility at the moment if I 
can just work out
how to remove the guf that it also outputs.
