[Koha] Installing Koha on disconnected box

i am trying to help someone who has no internet access to setup and run Koha on a fresh box.
i break the install process into four major pre-requisites:
Installing the OS, Apache, and MySQL, and lastly, getting the Perl modules
While we can manage the first three relatively easily, its the fourth one (Perl modules) that i need help with.
("brute force"?) approach i thought i'd try is to just copy over the
contents of the Perl paths that contain the modules from my own running
install of Koha. (The modules are at /usr/lib/perl5 and
/usr/local/lib/perl5). If the OS and everything else is pretty similar,
there is some chance this will work, given that the modules were
compiled for a similar architecture (an x86 PC)?
i haven't tried this yet, but before i do, i am sure there are better ways to do this. For e.g., cpan
still has the sources for all the modules i fetched at /root/.cpan/sources
i can compile and install cpan from scratch on the new box, copy over the sources,
and give CPAN a "local file url" (like file://...?) to go look for
stuff? Or is it possible to (temporarily and relatively easily) create
a CPAN mirror on a box on the local network?
Otherwise there are perhaps just too many modules and dependencies required to satisfy them to try and do this one at a time.
i hear there's a way to get a "tarball" of modules for specific needs,
has someone tried doing one for Koha? Or can i create one from what i
Hoping to hear some good useful advice from you all, as always. This one's for you, Prashant...
