This could become a perl CPAN thread quickly, much to the dismay of many 
here, so lets try and keep this short. The first time when you ran CPAN 
it asked you a bunch of questions, oen of them about if you wanted to 
follow and fulfil all dependencies. Maybe you have said 'No' here, which 
*could* cause problems installing CPAN modules without having all 
dependencies. Without a whole lot more info, which *will* most 
definitively be very off topic for this list, it's near impossible to 
solve your problem. I'd suggest asking this question on a perl list...
