If i understand this right your problem is solved.

IPC-ShareLite is not a build requires for Cache-Cache:

and IPC-SharedCache is not a build a requires for HTML-Template:

They are both optional packages. So the chain is broken right?

Im not sure if your code is taking into account META.yml requirements
information. Its not always available however, older packages wont
include it. (Although you can always generate it by using an up to
perl and doing a make dist on the package -- assuming you can get that
to work).

I suspect you will find most if not all of your dependency issues will
be resolved by using that information and not setting hard
dependencies on optional problematic packages.

Sorry i cant help there.
