I took only the notavailables and tested them with blead@29703:

  Carp-Assert-0.18                       superceded by 0.20 which wfm
  Catalyst-Engine-Apache-1.07            not tested because Catalyst not installed
  Catalyst-View-TT-0.24                  not tested because Catalyst not installed
  DateTime-Locale-0.32                   wfm
  File-Modified-0.07                     wfm
  IO-Pager-0.06                          wfm
  Image-Size-3.01                        wfm
  Object-Signature-1.05                  wfm
  PerlIO-eol-0.14                        wfm
  Template-Plugin-Number-Format-1.01     does not specify dependency on Number::Format
                                         but if Number::Format installed, wfm
  Template-Timer-0.04                    fails for me too but also fails with 5.8.8
  Test-JSON-0.02                         wfm

So something works considerably better for me than for you. I append
my perl -V below.
