Test the MetaCPAN codebase with the latest CPAN toolchain

completed by: Cosmin Amironesei

mentors: Paul Johnson, Florian Ragwitz, Mark Gardner

MetaCPAN currently runs on slightly outdated versions of its CPAN dependencies. We'd like to upgrade, but we're not quite sure if anything would still work if we upgraded.

This tasks involves getting a fresh installation of perl 5.14.2, installing all the MetaCPAN dependencies from CPAN, reporting all test failures in them, and running the MetaCPAN frontend and backend on it to make sure the basic functionality is still working and all its tests pass.
