We have a git submodule for "cpan/".  We primarily deploy and develop on x86_64 linux, but we also keep the darwin/OS X arch updated so we can run things on our laptops.

Graham made http://github.com/abh/combust/raw/master/bin/diff_cpan_arch to easily show which .pm's are out-of-date.

~10 years ago at ValueClick we had Linux and FreeBSD binaries of everything (perl, apache, ...) checked into perforce to accomplish the same thing.

Anyway; I agree that it's much nicer than trying to use .rpm/.deb/... dependencies in your application.
