As far as I can see all dependencies are already there. The URI module
is distributed with Slackware's perl package and the other dependencies
are provided by SlackBuilds.org:


There's also perl-CPANPLUS-Dist-Slackware, which people could use to
build the MusicBrainz packages themselves but I heard that CPANPLUS will
be removed from Perl 5.18 so this won't be a very handy alternative in
the future.

cpan2dist --format CPANPLUS::Dist::Slackware --skiptest \
MusicBrainz::DiscID WebService::MusicBrainz
