Currently, portupgrade does not currently perform upgrades for perl
modules installed via perl's CPAN.pm module. Portupgrade would be vastly
more useful if portupgrade were to upgrade CPAN.pm modules at the same
time it upgrades FreeBSD ports. Given that portupgrade is aware of which
perl modules require updating, this functionality should be possible.

Example:

Check for out of date packages:
  bison-1.35_1 needs updating (port has 1.75)
  bsdpan-Archive-Tar-0.22 is obsolete
  bsdpan-Attribute-Handlers-0.78 is obsolete
  bsdpan-CGI.pm-2.87 is obsolete
  bsdpan-CPAN-1.63 is obsolete

Thanks,
--Lucky
