I think I see the problem.

You didn't try to install Plack, you tried to install Task::Plack which
installs an entire host of Plack-related technologies. I see POE and Starman
there, for example. Both of which aren't a requirement for Plack. Starman is
a Plack-based server, it's not Plack itself, nor does it come along with it.

You should take into account that Task::* modules are there to help you
install related technologies instead of just the barebones. That's why
Task::Moose suggests a host of MooseX modules, that's why Task::Dancer
suggests to install a lot of backends (some which require more modules which
require more modules).

That's what happened.
