How do you have CPAN configured?  Specifically where does cpan install
the new perl modules?  I seem to remember that cpan, by default,
installs in /P/Perl/ which isn't good.  Somewhere in /Files makes
sense.  I would be great if the Perl package had a sane default config
for cpan (hint, hint :-).

PS.  Yes cpan is an "ugly other package manager" but it has full
coverage of perl modules.  That is a LOT of work to duplicate
especially wrt defining dependencies.
