OpenBSD CPAN smoker: mission accomplished

I finally reached my personal set milestone regarding configuring and running a CPAN smoker on OpenBSD OS and grabbed me a honorable third place in number of submissions:

That was quite a ride! Despite my short experience with OpenBSD, I naively though it wouldn't be that hard... well, it was hard enough to generate some debate on CPAN Testers discussion list because  looks like nobody is doing much test on OpenBSD (or at least is not submitting results about it) nowadays.

All things considered, I decided to go a little further, so I grabbed all my lessons learned and created a document about the process. This work result is available at http://wiki.cpantesters.org/wiki/SmokerOnOpenBSD.
