I disagree. Distribution packaging systems cause a LOT of RT problems. 
Manual installation or platform-independent packaging is a much better 
way of managing RT and using CPAN to perform perl installations is by 
far the best automatable method.

While I do not know the answer to the original question, the goal is a 
laudable one and the plan seems sound.
