If, you decide you must use CPAN.

Then: "apt-get install dh-make-perl"

Then: "Read The Fine Manpage" AND /usr/share/doc/dh-make-perl/READ*

That way, lotsa things get F1XX0RZD all at the same time.

Basically, CPANPLUS not worky, CPAN worky, if you plan on uploading the
resultant module to Debian through a mentor or someone that is willing
to put thier name on it, make sure you make it DSFG and DDP compliant.
