Yet more bother - sorry :) The min version for dependancies in a created debian package is based on the latest version in CPAN rather than those provided in Makefile.PL It's mildly annoying and not that big a deal - especially as I run a script after cpan2dist to add local dependancies from the makefile, it now also "fixes" to a lower version if the Makefile.PL provides one.

Nope. The prerequisite listed in the .deb is based on the version we *built* the .deb with (as that way we know it works). So if you're installed version is sufficient, it'll use that version. If you dont have a prereq installed, we're grabbing it from CPAN and then *that* version is used. For details, see CPANPLUS::Dist::Deb:475 and onwards.
