Please find attached Mail-IMAPClient-2.2.9 ebuild for perl module.
Mail-IMAPClient is a perl module for handling IMAP accounts. I do not have a large amount of experience with building ebuilds. This is a modified version of the dev-perl/POP3Client ebuild.

Builds on IA32. Haven't got anything else to test on. Works for me(TM) status
The policy on perl modules in Gentoo is that they are only specifically included in the portage tree if they are a dependency of an app or they provide utilities. If that is not the case, g-cpan.pl should be used for installation instead.
Does this ebuild fill a dependency of something already in portage?
Closing for now. Please reopen if this is / becomes a dependency of something else. See previous comment.
No it does not!
Sorry for bothering you. I've been using Gentoo since 1.2 and I never realised g-cpan.pl existed, I've been creating ebuilds of my commonly used Perl modules in my portage overlay tree for quite some time now. Is this documented someplace where I have missed it?
No bother at all. The documenation for g-cpan is a little thin at the moment. Hopefully this will be corrected sooner rather than later.
