Freenode, and irssi: Slackbuilds for the perl modules?

With the latest Freenode changes SSL connection is now possible which presents no problem, particularly with rworkman's ca-certificates slackbuild, thanks for that! But configuring sasl for the password to nickserv presents a bit more of a challenge as 3 perl modules are required: Crypt::OpenSSL::Bignum, Crypt::DH, Crypt::Blowfish and Math::BigInt. I have not packaged perl modules for slackware before and I guess there is always a first time but can I ask if anybody has already neatly packaged up the required perl modules? I suspect they will be very popular with Freenode slackware irc users...

Never mind, I have discovered cpan2tgz which fills my needs perfectly :).

Some may be interested in a guide I have just written up detailing all this:

irssi and Slackware: Connecting to Freenode with SSL/SASL

Any comments and corrections welcome :).
