You didn't specify how you are attempting to get the list of modules from your NQCPAN server. So I may be way off base here but the CPAN::Site docs say:

Then use -MCPAN::Site instead of -MCPAN

perl -MCPAN::Site -e shell

    Sorry about that. Yes, I am using -MCPAN::Site -eshell. Using CPAN::Site is supposed to be seamless to using normal CPAN.

    When getting modules, CPAN::Site *should* look at the 01mailrc.txt.gz and 02packages.details.txt.gz in the site/ folder on the NQCPAN box. I did notice, however, when building the directory structure and running mkpackages that the 02packages.details.txt.gz is not built correctly (like that of 02packages.details.txt.gz for the normal CPAN). One of the things I tried in my many failures was to produce a 02packages.details.txt.gz file formatted like that of the normal CPAN, except listing all our packages. No bones.
