in reply to MCPAN install seems impossible

I've found that sometimes modules are config for specific systems or the mcpan misses a requirement (or at least thats what authors claim when I write them) and there isn't facility to make the adjustments in the shell. While outside the cpan shell, find the module files (eg: ~/.cpan/build/modulename)and do the perl Makefile.PL/make/make test/make install routine by hand. Even if it fails, you should better input as to the problem or decide to force the install.
