You're installing these modules to the wrong perl.  Try these steps:

/usr/local/bin/perl -MCPAN -eshell

Follow the prompts and set up the CPAN module.

Once you have the CPAN prompt type the following:

install Bundle::CPAN

...wait for it to complete, allow it to install any needed dependancies...

install Bundle::InterchangeKitchenSink

...again, wait for it to complete and install any needed dependancies 
when it prompts you...

If you're planning on using an SQL database you'll need to install the 
appropriate module for that as well...

install DBD::Pg (for postgresql)
install DBD::mysql (for mysql)

...or the appropriate module for whatever other database you're using.

Then when you install the interchange rpm file rpm may still complain 
about missing those dependancies.  Unfortunately that's because RPM is 
broken on centos 4 and it doesn't check perl modules properly.  What you 
will need to do is verify that each module that it is complaining about 
has been installed (make absolutely ceartain of this) then proceed to 
install the rpm with the --nodeps switch.


(knows all this because he just finished doing an install on centos 4
