This is actually a very complicated problem and was the focus of my DPAN work. I have stuff to map files back to the distributions they came from, but it takes an enormous database to do so. There are all sorts of special cases and multi-variate problems to work out. App::Module::Lister is something specifically-designed for a particular purpose, as it says in the docs: "This is a program to list all of the Perl modules it finds in @INC for a no-shell web hosting account."
