looks quite good now, few comments inline

do: $title //= $key; before that, else $title may still be undef...

$cutoffs{$key} = defined($cutoff) && $cutoff < $longest ? $cutoff : $longest;

could be used instead of above 6 lines, defined-ness check optional as
cutoff==0 makes not much sense, but having it hedges against caller bugs

FYI, you can use "${titlelen}s" if you need to concat variables and
strings without white space boundary in-between, e.g.:

$formatstring .= "%${printalign}$[titlelen}s\n";
