[p4perl] Need advice with cross-platform deployment

Can't you build it on each OS type and deploy it pre-built?
We've been using Perl2EXE to package our perl build scripts and it's
worked very well. We don't have to worry about what version of perl is 
installed on a given machine, or what modules are in the local library. 
(We have a common build filesystem so I write a wrapper script for each 
P2E utility that selects the correct file for which ever OS calls the script.
That way every build machine executes the same command.)

Subject: [p4perl] Need advice with cross-platform deployment



I'm considering using the P4Perl module to provide our Perl-based build system an interface to our new Perforce server. The build engine will be running on many build machines across multiple platforms, Windows, Linux, Solaris and HP-UX, and will support both Perl 5.6 and 5.8. Based on this, can anyone give me some advice on what's the best way to build and deploy P4Perl short of having to build and install it on each of our 60 or so build systems?
