Comment (by ken@…):

 Replying to [comment:8 bdubbs@…]:
 > I don't know if you use it, but I generally use the 'cpan -i <module>'
 method.  It's still "from source", but relatively painless.

 The '-i' appears to be unnecessary. I just gave it a try for *one* of the
 modules now needed by biber on my test server (so, most/all of the biber
 deps are missing). With the automatic configuration it pulls in optional
 as well as recommended dependencies - I got considerably more modules than
 I was expecting.

 And it doesn't help much with working out which modules need a particular
 dep if it is used by more than one.  With a non-automatic config by root,
 plus restoring to a backup after each added module, it is a possibility.
 I might try that later, in case I have missed any already-existing deps
 for new modules, but saving logs, reading them, and restoring to an older
 backup will be tedious.

 I first tried as a user, with minimal options - but it bails on the first
 failed install.
