You can use pacpan in a script to get the latest versions (and to generate PKGBUILDs with extensive provides arrays (many CPAN modules use the same sources and thus create the same package even though they use different names)).

You can also use makerepo with pacpan to automatically build newer packages when new module versions are released.
