A bundle is good, but when producing a bundle, keep in mind a couple of

* until 5.12 and its re-ordered @INC is out, modules distributed with
  the core can't be superseded by newer versions without overwriting the
  files, which is a big problem if you're installing the whole bundle as
  a single rpm (for example)

* more modules mean that you'll probably loose some platforms or
  configurations, which is OK if you're bundling for a specific family
  of OS or architecture
